TASER announced several large TASER Conducted Electrical Weapon, or CEW, orders for more than 2,600 TASER X2 and more than 1,000 TASER X26 in the last two weeks of 2012. "Some of our largest orders this quarter, including the Phoenix Police Department, were made possible through our new TASER Protection Plan, or TPP, which enables agencies to spread payments out over a five-year period," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER International. He continued, "The TPP enables agencies to smooth their budget expenditures over time rather than having to return for special one time capital equipment funding every five to seven years to replace or upgrade their technology. TPP has enabled numerous customers with aging fleets of CEWs to upgrade this critical officer safety equipment."
