07:42 EDTDGLYDigital Ally reports increase in inquiries regarding FirstVU HD Body Camera
Digital Ally announced that the number of inquiries that it has received from law enforcement agencies interested in its FirstVU HD Officer-Worn Video System has increased dramatically since the national media began covering the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Stanton E. Ross, CEO of Digital Ally, stated, "The civil unrest that has resulted in riots and looting of local businesses in Ferguson, Missouri during the past week has drawn national attention to the critical importance of audio and video documentation of evidence collection involving law enforcement officers. Police departments and other law enforcement agencies have long recognized the value of in-car video systems in documenting the activities of public safety officers and the persons they apprehend upon suspicion of traffic and other violations of the law. An audio/video recording often proves to be invaluable in court because it can answer critical questions regarding inappropriate actions by either the law enforcement officer or the person who may have broken the law."

08:32 EDTDGLYDigital Ally receives order from U.S. Military Police for FirstVu HD Body Camera
Digital Ally announced that it has received an order from a U.S. military base involving the Company's complete video evidence gathering system. The solution includes the FirstVU HD body-worn camera, DVM-800 in-car camera and patented VuLink, which provides hands-free recording activation and integrates the video systems into a seamless data/evidence gathering solution. The initial order is valued at approximately $200,000, with subsequent follow-on orders expected. Although not a huge order in itself, the military police in general represents a largely untapped channel through which Digital Ally can distribute its line of products, and illustrates an increasing awareness of the benefits provided by capturing comprehensive audio and video of officer-involved incidents for police forces in all areas.

14:38 EDTDGLYTASER, Digital Ally climb after report praises police cameras
Shares of TASER (TASR) and Digital Ally (DGLY) - which both make wearable cameras for police officers - are rising after a report praised such devices. The report was written by an independent research organization called The Police Executive Research Forum, with support from the Justice Department. WHAT'S NEW: Wearable cameras have strengthened accountability and transparency in many ways, the report quoted all police executives with whom it spoke as saying. The cameras have enabled agencies to find and correct "large structural problems" and have increased the professionalism of officers, the report stated. Implementing wearable cameras has caused complaints to decline, while improving interactions between offices and the public, the report added. Furthermore, the wearable cameras have enhanced the ability of officers to collect evidence. The report features several quotes of high ranking officials discussing the benefits of wearable cameras for police. The Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, Roy Austin, Jr., is quoted as saying that, "Some police departments are doing themselves a disservice by not using body-worn cameras," as not having the cameras puts police at a disadvantage when dealing with citizens who do carry cameras. Additionally, if police departments are investigated by the Civil Rights Division, wearable cameras can show that they are following the Constitution, Austin stated. However, the report did urge agencies to consider privacy issues before implementing wearable camera and it suggested that officers could have concerns about wearing cameras. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, TASER advanced 1% to $18, well off its low for the day of $17.38, and Digital Ally climbed 2% to $19.03, well off its daily low of $18.16.
