It's the first "significant deployment" of the Evidence.com storage-as-a-service offering from TASER International Inc.: The nation of New Zealand will use Evidence.com to manage the audio/video data from the national deployment of TASER X26 Electronic Control Devices (ECDs, better know as "TASERs") and TASER CAM devices. The contract provides support for a recent procurement of 777 TASER X26 ECDs and TASER CAM devices in the fourth quarter of 2009.

With Evidence.com, officers place their TASER video and data recording devices onto a dock, which securely transmits the content off-site, removing the burden of storage from the local law enforcement office and assuring evidence integrity.

“We are very excited to announce that the New Zealand Police have become the first national police force to standardize on Evidence.com for the secure management of data from the TASER X26 and TASER CAM systems,” said Tom Smith, Chairman and founder of TASER International. “The national deployment of TASER X26 ECDs follows an extensive test and evaluation program during which TASER devices safely de-escalated numerous dangerous situations. We are proud that the New Zealand Police have selected our technology platform to help avert potential loss of life and significant injuries for both law enforcement and the public.”

The New Zealand order for TASER X26 ECDs, TASER CAM units, and related accessories was received and shipped in the 4th Quarter 2009 while Evidence.com is anticipated to go live in the 1st Quarter 2010.
