The Pasadena Police Department has ordered a new batch of TASER Conducted Energy Weapons (CEWs) from Scottsdale, Arizona-based Axon, formerly TASER International, an Axon statement Wednesday revealed.
The statement said the Pasadena Police Department order for 210 TASER 7 nonlethal devices was one of several significant domestic orders they received from law enforcement agencies across the United States.
The orders were placed in the first and second quarters of 2019 and will be shipped in multiple phases, the company said.
The Axon statement described the TASER 7 as their most effective TASER weapon ever.
The advanced performance of TASER 7 makes for greater confidence in the field with enhanced connection to the Axon network and streamlined workflows, and it’s all backed by groundbreaking training to help agencies show commitment to serving their communities, the company’s website said.
The description added the TASER 7 dramatically improves performance with misses, clothing disconnects, and close probe spreads giving officers even more confidence to de-escalate or pause dangerous situations.
Three other California police departments were included in the Axon list of domestic organizations with significant orders for the TASER weapons systems.
