Washington State Police Department trading in tasers for Stinger S-200's

October 7, 2008

Stinger Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: STIY), a leader in electro-stun technology today announced that the City of Fife, in Washington State has purchased Stinger's S-200 projectile stun guns for their Corrections Division and they will be trading in their Taser weapons under Stinger's 'trade in your Taser' program.

Assistant Chief Mark Mears stated, "When the department found out there was an alternative to Tasers, we felt that we had a responsibility to our citizens and police officers to take a look at it. Having reviewed the features and capabilities of the S-200 as well as having several officers attend Stinger's training, we concluded that the S-200 is utilizing state of the art technology for Electronic Control Devices.

We liked the fact that the Stinger puts less electrical current into the body than the Taser.

Not only does the S-200 meet our requirements, it also is a great economic decision for our tax payers. We therefore, decided to take advantage of Stinger's trade in our Taser program and will be sending them back our existing units."

FYI - Stinger management under SEC investigation by the SEC and local police. Watch what you pump.
