Friday September 21, 7:30 am ET

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 21, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- TASER International, Inc. (NasdaqGS:TASR - News), a market leader in advanced electronic control devices, today announced that the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) has posted ``Resolution in Support of the Use of Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) and Less Lethal Devices by Law Enforcement Officers in Use of Force Situations'' on the organization's official website at noblenational.org. The resolution was adopted at the 31st NOBLE Annual Conference, on July 27, 2007, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
``TASER technology is redefining how law enforcement officials best protect the communities they serve,'' said Tom Smith, Chairman and co-founder of TASER International, Inc. ``We have always been dedicated to working with leadership organizations within the law enforcement community such as NOBLE to assure that we are doing everything we can to best serve those that are choosing TASER ECDs to protect life.''

``The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) supports the protection of the life of every law enforcement officer.

''We recognize that proper training and policies will instill the public's confidence in law enforcement's use of such weapon in order for these types of weapons to become standard issue for every officer performing a patrol or prisoner restraint function.``

It's sort of odd. I was thinking how my TASER position has doubled in less time than my GOOG would have doubled if I'd held onto it.

But there is so much cache attached to GOOG that I feel upset I didn't hold onto it.

Yet it's the same increase in $.

numbers for year end 2008 goog 700. about 15 to 18% large investment that may be much better placed elsewhere.. i hold some goog but not impressed with growth. of course i bought near year end last year. just seems you put out a very large amount of capital to get a small return vs other small cap stocks. etc

I know. My neighbor loves them (he works at a hospital). Lots of people love them. I don't like the unnatural material--it felt weird to me. OTOH that has nothing to do with the stock!

600 Taser Cams for Las Vegas Metro 08:02 pm kvbc.com.
Metro officers say they are seeing more and more violent attacks against them. One of the weapons officers have at their disposal to protect themselves and the public is the TASER®. Soon, many of them will be equipped with cameras.

But these weapons are not without controversy. News 3's Luis Cruz takes a closer look at these devices.

The TASER® is used to temporarily immobilize a suspect. But some critics say there have been instances across the country where the use of them have been linked to deaths. However, a recent study by Wake Forest University suggests the TASER® is safe, and Metro agrees.

"We maintain that it is a safe device and it has in fact saved lives and it has saved injuries and not just cops' lives but suspect injuries," insists Metro's TASER® coordinator, Marcus Martin.

Metro is in the process of updating their TASERS®. The department recently received a $240,000 grant that will allow them to buy about 600 cameras for the devices. Everything that an officer sees and hears will now be captured on small a camera attached to the TASER®. The camera automatically turns on once the safety is unlocked.

"It helps the officer, it helps the department and it also shows the citizens on the street that we're not trying to hide anything; this is actually what had happened," Metro's Andy Williams said.

Metro says it will use the video from the TASER® cams as evidence and to help in their investigations. The department says it's seen a 54 percent decrease in officer injuries since they started using the TASER®.
