  • police tasers

    good day all, do you need to turn on a taser after you draw it or do you just need to draw it and pull the trigger to fire it?? also it there much of a weight difference between a taser and a glock?? not sure if you heard about it but here in MN a police officer got the 2 weapons confused

        The way to train with tasers is to have them on the off side. Negligent taser discharge is a training issue.

          It drives me insane(r) when everyone, whether civilian or PO / LEO, refers to conducted energy weapons by the brand name; no sense going down the Band-Aid route with these use-of-force tools.

            This officer is not the first and will not be the last to draw the wrong weapon ....................It happens not frequently but enough that most agencies have safeguards in place to make it harder to confuse the two.

            We understand you are a civilian.

            It is a long standing matter here on the forum that we do not discuss procedural issues. The way we train is part of that.

            I get yearly training on the use of the Taser

            Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

              Many departments require the Taser be carried so that it has to be fired by the off-hand.

              It is extremely easy and common in a high-pressure situation to draw your sidearm when you meant to draw a Taser if they are on the same side and are drawn with the “strong” hand.

              Its possible to do it even when worn for draw by the off hand, but makes it less likely.

              What it weighs, how it feels... none of that really matters because you’re running on muscle memory.

              Departments train constantly, but humans make mistakes.

              The officer made a mistake but the subject created the situation where the mistake was possible in the first place.

                The ex=Police Officer made a MAJOR mistake, and NOW has to pay for it, as does her former Agency.
                As far as the questions, those will be answered during the Trial, unless she takes a plea-bargain.
                Otherwise, civilians need NO more information than that.
