The TASER X2 incorporates law enforcement agencies’ most requested features such as a backup shot, dual lasers, and a warning arc to protect life in the field.
According to the company’s website, the TASER X2’s backup shot removes any need to manually reload and improves safety and performance in the case of a missed shot or clothing disconnect.
Recently, TASER International has received an order for 800 TASER X2 Smart Weapons to outfit all patrol members of the Georgia Department of Public Safety, which oversees the day-to-day operation of the Georgia State Patrol (GSP), Capitol Police and the Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD).
While GSP troopers investigate traffic crashes and enforce traffic and criminal laws on the state’s roads, Capitol Police officers prevent and detect criminal acts, and enforce traffic regulations throughout Capitol Hill. MCCD officers conduct safety inspections of commercial motor vehicles and inspect highway shipments of hazardous materials, according to americansecuritytoday.com.
The TASER is laser-focused, dual lasers eliminate any aiming guesswork and enhance accuracy by allowing the user to see exactly where the top and bottom probes will enter a target.
The warning arc increases voluntary surrenders and helps stop conflicts from escalating. It issues an audible warning directly over the front of live cartridges.
“All of our initial field uses of the X2 resulted in voluntary surrenders upon display of the warning arc… This was dramatically different than our previous experience with the X26,” says Kevin Sailor, Westminster Police Department.
Cross-connect improves overall effectiveness by increasing the amount of electricity delivered throughout the muscle mass, resulting in a greater level of incapacitation without supplying an additional charge current.
The static-resistant TASER smart cartridge is more accurate and durable than a standard cartridge, which increases reliability and lowers the risk of accidental discharge.
