TASER International Announces Two Significant Orders

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Police and Hawaii County Police Department

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, April 24, 2007 - TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TASR) a market leader in advanced electronic control devices today announced two orders. The first order from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 3,000 TASER® X26 Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) and related accessories for delivery to the Pennsylvania State Police. The second order from Hawaii County Police Department on the big island of Hawaii for 450 TASER® X26 ECDs and related accessories.

"We plan to issue the TASER X26 to patrol members and supervisors," said Sgt. David E. Pallone of the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Research and Development. "We had 35 successful deployments in the field since February 2006. By and large the agency is confident in the effectiveness of the TASER X26 and the rank and file is very enthusiastic and anxious to deploy another use of force option. The troopers will deploy a TASER X26 upon consideration of the totality of the circumstance when the use of force is necessary and authorized to control a given situation. This deployment is in the best interest of officer and public safety," concluded Sgt Pallone. The Pennsylvania State Police, with over 4,200 sworn Troopers, is over 100 years old and serves as the primary law enforcement agency for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

"We applaud the Pennsylvania State Police and specifically their Bureau of Research and Development for their due diligence and extensive research put forth on our TASER technology," said Tom Smith, Chairman and Co-Founder of TASER International.

"We are honored by the Hawaii County Police Department's decision to go to full deployment with our TASER technology based on their own research as well as a review of other police departments' data showing that TASER devices reduce injuries and protect lives," concluded Smith.

These orders were originally planned to ship during the first quarter of 2007, but were delayed. These orders together totaled 3,450 TASER® X26 Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) with related accessories and are expected to ship in the second quarter of 2007.
