TAMPA, Fla. , April 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stinger Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: STIY) a leader in electro-stun technology today announced that the Henry, Illinois Police Department has purchased Stinger S-200 projectile stun devices.
Chief James Young stated, "After careful evaluations of the Stinger and the Taser, I determined that choosing the Stinger is an obvious and easy choice. I believe the Stinger S-200 offers officers an excellent alternative to other force options. I particularly liked what I believe is Stinger's superior dart spread, internal cartridge housing, and the one-handed quick eject button. For nearly half the price of the competition, I am getting a weapon that achieves a great level of immobilization while putting less current into the chest. As a Police Chief, I would encourage every law enforcement administrator to closely evaluate the Stinger and read through what appears a subversive effort to discredit Stinger by a focused bashing machine that has littered the Internet. Information such as partially released NIJ studies that were performed on S-200 models not even being sold now.
Chief Young continued, "Further, I am particularly happy to see Stinger's stance on officer safety knowing that Stinger does not sell their weapons designed for law enforcement purposes to the civilian market. I know several small and large agencies looking at making purchases of the Stinger and I believe the Stinger is the future of stun weapons."
