Chesapeake Police to Begin Carrying Tasers

Comments (0)
My colleague Randy Appleton notes in his latest post to the Norfolk Injuryboard that police officers in Chesapeake will begin carrying Tasers [URL to come]. Police in every other Hampton Roads city patrol the streets with stun guns, as well. While the weapons can reduce the need for officers to use guns or other forms of physical force to subdue suspects, Tasers have also been linked to serious injuries and deaths. A 2009 incident in which a Hampton man lost his life after being shocked is still under investigation.
