Puebla Municipal Police partners with Axon for the implementation of TASER devices


Puebla is the fifth large city in Mexico to deploy Axon TASER X2 conducted electrical devices to increase officer and civilian safety.

AXON, the global leader in connected public safety technologies, today announced that Puebla Municipal Police Department will equip officers with TASER conducted electrical devices (CEDs) as a critical de-escalation tool to safely handle situations and reduce injuries to officers and the public.

“We are excited to partner with the Puebla Police in implementing a TASER device program,” says Vishal Dhir, Axon’s Managing Director of Canada and Latin America. “This procurement of the TASER X2 demonstrates Puebla Police’s dedication to leveraging the latest technology to increase officer and community safety, putting them at the forefront of public safety technology in Mexico.”

“Law enforcement agencies must be in the forefront of equipment and training in order to appropriately address the challenges of police work,” says Maria de Lourdes Rosales Martínez, Puebla’s Municipal Secretary of Citizen Security. “Providing officers with less-lethal weapons continues to strengthen our public safety activities in order to maintain order and peace.”

Axon, which is committed to expanding its presence internationally and providing market-leading technology to public safety officers, is thrilled to be partnering with Puebla Police as it deploys TASER CEDs in Mexico. Puebla Police joins Monterrey Police Department in leading the way with TASER device expansion in Mexico.
