Taser International, the American firm widely known for its stun guns, is doing a booming business in the US. The company’s profits surged 57 percent over the previous quarter largely thanks to the sales of body cameras to thousands of police units.
Taser’s Axon brand, producing wireless body cameras that can be attached to the shirt pocket, zipper, lapel or utility belt of a law enforcement officer’s uniform, accounted for the hike in profits. Taser International reported a 97.5 percent jump in Axon segment revenues to $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 in comparison to the prior year second quarter. Axon body-worn camera hardware sales increased $1.7 million compared to the prior year period as more agencies chose to embrace the technology.
