ADVANCED TASER® M26 Wins Editor’s Choice for “Best in Security” by French
“Cibles” Magazine at Paris’ MILIPOL Trade Show
SCOTTSDALE, AZ., November 21, 2001 - TASER International, Inc. (Nasdaq: TASR), a provider of advanced
less-lethal weapons for use in the law enforcement, private security and personal defense markets, today reported it
had won Cible Magazine’s award for “Cible D’Or” as best security product in France. The award was presented to
TASER International today during the MILIPOL Paris Exposition (military and police).
"I feel honored to received this award while attending today’s MILIPOL. The Cible D’Or award comes on the heel
of so many exciting company events during the past week. Although our product has been an overwhelming export
success story in France for TASER International over the years, I did not expect the vaunted Cibles Magazine to
present this to our company. It is a pleasant surprise and confirms that others are impressed with the ADVANCED
TASER over the past year in France,” said Rick Smith, Chief Executive Officer.
“With the recent commitment by United Airlines to arm their aircraft crews with the ADVANCED TASER M26
and our announcement that 1,000 law enforcement agencies are deploying the M26, this award could not have come
at any better time. By attending the MILIPOL tradeshow, we are in the right place to expand our export program
and to further develop our sales to law enforcement overseas. The response here is overwhelming at MILIPOL.
Our booth is packed with interested law enforcement agencies and distributors. It is more than flattering to have
many of these attendees comment so positively concerning the Cible D’Or award,” continued Mr. Smith.
MILIPOL Paris, held November 20 – 23, 2001, at Paris-Le Bourget Exhibition Centre-France. MILIPOL Paris
Exposition is the world leader of expositions devoted to security and anti-criminal technologies and a meeting point
for all international decision-makers for public and industrial security.
