LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 26, 2007) - ASIS INTERNATIONAL 2007 -- Law Enforcement Associates Corporation (LEA) (AMEX: AID), the largest U.S. developer and manufacturer of undercover surveillance equipment, today announced it has received an order for eight of the Company's Smith & Wesson®-branded UVIS Swifts, which will be used by the U.S. Army in Iraq. The Swift is a portable under-vehicle inspection system that captures high-resolution video images of a car's undercarriage. The units bound for Iraq will be used in explosives detection operations at military checkpoints.

"It is gratifying to know that our surveillance equipment is being used to enhance security for both military and civilian personnel in one of the world's most dangerous settings," said Paul Feldman, president of LEA. "We have been demonstrating the Swift and our newly launched Graffiti Cam at the ASIS International security conference this week, and are very encouraged by the response we are receiving."

LEA developed the original UVIS following the Khobar Tower bombings in 1996. The Smith & Wesson-branded Swift, a compact and portable version of the original UVIS, was introduced last year. Both models incorporate a ground-based, wide-angle video camera system that transmits high-resolution color imagery to remote video monitors. The devices are typically utilized at checkpoints and entrances to secure facilities such as embassies and military bases. LEA has shipped approximately 2,000 UVIS platforms during the past decade.
