Scottsdale-based Axon Enterprise Inc. has secured 18 orders for its Taser weapons and Axon body cameras for police agencies across the U.S.

The large domestic orders included one Valley order: 300 Taser 7 weapons and 300 Axon Body 3 cameras and related equipment for the Glendale Police Department.
