SCOTTSDALE, AZ - TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR) announced today the launch of the RISE awards in partnership with PoliceOne.com. This unique awards program is designed to identify select law enforcement officers and agencies that have demonstrated extraordinary effort and served their community with honor.
"We have the great pleasure of witnessing acts of heroism, both big and small, by law enforcement officials every day," said Rick Smith, Founder and CEO of TASER. "Through the RISE awards we hope to recognize these home-town heroes and agencies for their leadership and honorable work in helping to make our communities safer."
Police officers and citizens alike are invited to go to TASER's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TASER.International) and click on the RISE awards tab to nominate a person or a police department who they feel rises above the rest in the three award categories. Nominations will be accepted until September 15, 2014 and three winners will be selected and announced on October 1, 2014. Winners will each receive three TASER AXON flex body-worn cameras and a standard one-year subscription to TASER's backend digital evidence management system, EVIDENCE.com. They will also receive a one-year subscription to PoliceOne Academy and a free trip and VIP access to this year's highly anticipated International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference and expo in Orlando, FL on October 25-28, 2014.
