OVERLAND PARK, Kan. , Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Digital Ally, Inc. (Nasdaq: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial security applications, today announced that it has achieved another milestone, with its DVM-500 In-Car Rearview Mirror Systems now being used by over 2,500 law enforcement agencies.
Since Digital Ally began delivering its DVM-500 systems to customers in March 2006 , the Company has shipped approximately 13,000 units to law enforcement agencies in all 50 states, the U.S. government, and 16 foreign countries.
"While we are very pleased to pass the 2,500 customer milestone, we believe Digital Ally has only scratched the surface of the market potential for its state-of-the-art digital video products," stated Stanton E. Ross , Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "We have yet to supply a majority of the in-car video systems deployed in the vehicle fleets of our existing customers, and Digital Ally has sold products to less than 15% of the estimated 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the United States . In the U.S. alone, there are approximately 450,000 police cruisers and other law enforcement vehicles in service that require in-car video systems. About 70,000 of these vehicles are retired from fleets annually and are replaced with new vehicles that become candidates for our DVM-500 systems, as well."
"If one considers that the average law enforcement agency operates 20 to
25 patrol cars and that we have delivered only 13,000 units to our 2,500
customers, this would leave a potential of over 37,000 units, or over
