The TASER CAM™ from TASER International offers increased accountability—not just for officers, but for the people they encounter. Until now, it’s been the officer’s word against the suspect’s word. Now with the TASER CAM, the truth is undeniable. Every potential TASER® X26 deployment can be recorded with full audio and video—even in zero light conditions. For a limited time, TASER International will provide a free TASER CAM test and evaluation unit for a period of up to 60 days for interested agencies. For more information or to request an evaluation unit, visit www.TASER.com or call (800) 978-2737.

Valor Systems introduced Public Safety’s first multidiscipline Integrated Incident Management System powered by Microsoft® .NET. Valor Systems arms professionals with the tools to take control of every safety situation anytime, anywhere on any device. Using Valor’s new integrated .NET Framework, multiple agencies can now embrace a customizable, intuitive solution that maximizes the effectiveness and reliability of critical data.
Modules include applications for dispatch, law enforcement, fire, jail and mobile data. Each module can be used separately, but when they are used together, they form a complete system where information is shared where needed, eliminating duplicated data entry for all disciplines.
