Police Defend Rise in Taser Use

Share

“Police (in the UK) have defended their increasing use of the 50,000-volt Taser stun gun.

The device, which fires two tiny darts connected by a wire, delivers a disabling electrical charge to the body.

The Taser was deployed by officers 123 times in the county in 2011

It was designed for use in situations in which officers would previously have used conventional firearms.

A national report by the Home Office yesterday gave details of each police force’s use of the weapon in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

The rest of the story is HERE.

In 2009, according to the report, Taser was deployed on 79 occasions in 2009, rising to 103 the following year and 123 in 2011.

However, it was only fired in a minority of cases – six times in 2009, seven in 2010 and on 25 occasions in 2011. In most cases, the force said, targets gave themselves up when they saw officers carrying the weapons, heard the crackle of its electrical charge or noticed the red sighting dot on their bodies.

Leicestershire’s Assistant Chief Constable Phil Kay said: “Taser offers police a less lethal option to resolve situations, which include threats of violence from an individual towards the public, themselves and the police.

“Leicestershire Police only use Taser in situations where necessary.

“In the majority of cases, involving Taser, the mere presence of it has been enough to deter the assailant.”

Leicestershire has 110 officers trained to use Taser.

Mr Kay said: “They have all undergone rigorous training to ensure they are qualified to use Taser.”

The group’s director, Kate Allen, said: “Our police officers have a difficult job to do protecting the public and themselves, but Amnesty International does not want to see them go on the streets holding a potentially lethal weapon without adequate training.”

How Tasers Work

Share

Here’s a story from one of the leading newspapers in Toronto, Canada that explains in detail how tasers work.

“A Taser works by delivering high voltage — but low amperage — to the human body. A Taser delivers a powerful but temporary shock rather than a sustained and deadly charge.”

You can read the whole story HERE.

“The electricity sends signals to the central nervous system, causing pain and muscle contractions. Most victims fall down, which is why it’s used to subdue people in police altercations.”

The story goes on to explain • Two probes can be fired up to 10.6 metres, although most police operate a model that travels only 7.6 metres. These probes attach to the body, creating an electrical circuit.

• The probes emit 19 pulses per second, and each charge lasts for about five seconds.
• When fired, a Taser can emit an initial charge of up to 50,000 volts. By the time it comes in contact with the body, the charge is usually diminished to about 1,800 volts.

The Taser X 26C is the most popular type of Taser sold in Canada.

Tasers-Product Review

Share

Tasers have become one of the most effective and popular tools in fighting crime in the country. Police and law enforcement agencies are using them with greater frequency. They are a great alternative to deadly force in the “continuum of force.”

Civilians are using them for self-defense for the simple reason they are so effective-nearly 100% stopping power.

Here’s How Tasers Work.

The taser is a powerful conducted energy weapon that is non-lethal yet can incapacitate an assailant from 15 feet away.

Tasers use Neuro Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) “which is the key technology to disable even the most aggressive subjects, NMI temporarily overrides the command and control systems of the body to impair muscular control and Shaped Pulse™ Technology – A sophisticated pulse wave that utilizes a high voltage leading edge to penetrate barriers such as clothing around the body followed by a lower voltage stimulation pulse to cause Neuro Muscular Incapacitation”
Tasers sends an 18-26 watt electrical signal that completely overrides the central nervous system which controls muscle function. The energy pulses work so well they can’t be overcome.

The NMI power surge instantly disrupts the nervous system causing the assailant to fall to the ground in uncontrollable contractions and spasms with no long lasting effects. The effect physically incapacitates a target regardless of pain tolerance or mental focus. A taser can stop anyone regardless of training.

The C2 taser in police studies has a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm hand gun. It shoots out two darts attached to 15 feet of wire. 50,000 volts travel over the insulated wires for an unbelievable near 100 % takedown record.

Taser Int’l requires background checks on all models prior to use. Some states and cities have restrictions on their use. Consult your local police or sheriff’s department for restrictions.

Tasers have grown in popularity because they save lives and are such an effective nonlethal self-defense weapon. It hasn’t fallen on deaf ears to the public that more and more police agencies are using tasers. If it is good enough for them why shouldn’t you have one?

Red Bluff police officers used a stun gun late Saturday night on a 43- year-old man who was creating a disturbance at Food Maxx.

Employees said Lance Elton Ward was inside the business without any apparent purpose and had been asked to leave.

Ward became angry and verbally abusive, although employees were able to get Ward outside the business before calling the police, according to the release.

Officers arrived and attempted to detain Ward in the parking lot for the purpose of their investigation.

The release said Ward refused all commands and warnings given by officers and attempted to walk away.

When one officer placed his hands on Ward to gain his compliance, Ward attempted to hit the officer, the release said.

A second officer deployed a Taser as Ward continued to resist arrest. The Taser was activated three times before officers were able to get Ward into handcuffs.

Taser Training Essential For Police Officers

This is a story about police officers and others getting training in the use of an electronic control device (ECD) called a taser. Police officers are actually required to get this training.

You can read the rest of the story HERE

“A red dot shines on the target, the trigger is pulled and a single “pop” sounds. Wires with barbed probes replace a bullet as electricity surges with repetitious snaps.

Upon skin contact, the probes fire electricity and 30 to 40 pieces of pinhead-sized paper come rushing out of the Taser, a brand name often used to describe conducted electrical weapons, or CEWs. The miniscule pieces of paper contain the serial number of the cartridge that was fired. It may sound simple, but like any other weapon, training produces better use.”

Taser’s are used by over 17,000 law enforcement agencies across the country. Several years ago Taser international took that technology and transferred it into a smaller version for civilians.

That version is called the Taser C 2. It does the same thing that law enforcement agencies tasers do but with fewer features and a shorter shooting range. Some police models have ranges up to 35 feet, while the C2 and other civilian versions only 15 feet but it can disable an assailant with near 100% effectiveness same as the police models.

Taser/Pepper Spray Compatability

This is a story about police departments that are having to re-think the use of pepper sprays and tasers. Every police officer carries a pepper spray on his utility belt. Most officers carry a taser as well. The problem is, the two are not necessarily compatible.

You can read the whole story HERE

When it comes down to subduing a suspect, police officers have an arsenal to choose from, but they have to make sure that their efforts don’t react negatively with what other officers on the scene are doing. This is why all police departments have recently, or are in the process of, testing and possibly replacing their brand of pepper spray.

It seems that a spark from the electronic control device (ECD) called the taser can ignite a flammable component of the pepper spray.

Fox Pepper Sprays are ECD/taser compatible.

The Fox labs Hard Case Keychain is one of the most popular sprays we carry.

When Pepper Spray Is Not Enough-Use A Taser

There was a story out of Australia where police are finding that a taser gun is being used more for their self-defense than pepper spray. Police are being confronted by the bad guys and pepper spray while effective doesn’t have the stopping power that a taser does.

It is well documented fact that tasers are nearly 100% effective and save the lives of police officers and their suspects as well. The only other alternative is deadly force and that is the last resort.

The Taser C 2 gold package has one C2 unit, a practice cartridge, two live cartridges, a practice target and a holster.

It uses neuromuscular incapacitation to disable an assailant for as much is 30 seconds giving you time to get away. The pulse technology is a sophisticated pulse wave that utilizes a high voltage leading edge to penetrate barriers such as clothing around the body followed by a lower voltage stimulation pulse to cause Neuro Muscular Incapacitation.

Over 18,000 law enforcement agencies in United States carry and use tasers as one of their primary means of nonlethal ways to do their job. They have been proven time and time again to be close to 100% effective with more stopping power than a 9 mm handgun.

This Taser C2 was designed specifically for women. It is smaller than other taser models but it does exactly the same thing-it shoots out to darts up to 15 feet away that can penetrate 1 inch of clothing each.

Part of this story is about police officers who were called to a home on a domestic disturbance. As police were entering the home they told a man who was involved to stay outside. He became belligerent and refused those orders. As he was making his way into the house, Police officers used the end of the taser, which is an effective stun device, to subdue him.

The C2 Taser is the most effective self-defense product there is with nearly 100% stopping power-more than some handguns. The C-2 taser was developed specifically for women. It does basically the same thing that the bigger police model tasers do but with less capability. They still shoot out two electrified darts that use high amperage and low-voltage to disable an assailant. The darts shoot out to 15 feet away. Because they are so effective at stopping assailants women in high risk situations prefer them over any other self-defense product

Here’s a story about a man who walked into a Fort Myers, Florida police station and asked to see a police officer. While he was waiting in the lobby two police officers arrived and noticed that he had a machete in his hand. Trust me, that’s not something you miss.

He began attacking the two officers with the machete. One officer shot him with his taser which caused the man to drop the machete and slump to the floor.

Almost all police officers carry taser’s with them these days as part of their continuum of force in performing their duties. Law enforcement tasers have ranges up to 35 feet and are considerably more expensive with more bells and whistles than the civilian models.

The most popular civilian model is the C2 Taser that does everything the police models do as far as shooting out two darts but their range is only 15 feet. Tasers have amazing takedown capability- close to 100%.
