TASER International's products protect life, providing advanced electronic control devices for use in the law enforcement, medical, military, corrections, professional security, and personal protection markets. TASER devices use proprietary technology to incapacitate dangerous, combative, or high-risk subjects who pose a risk to law enforcement officers, innocent citizens, or themselves in a manner that is generally recognized as a safer alternative to other uses of force.

When faced with a violent, resistant subject, the use of a TASER device reduces the risk of injury not only to the officers involved, but the offender as well.
