Taser Training

Officers on the range could be confronted with either of two targets.  One that requires a Taser and one that requires a handgun.  The officer should be surprised by a turning target and be required to make a quick decision as to which weapon to select.

The officer should have to run the course three times.  The officer should fire one of the two weapons twice and the second weapon once.  Some should fire the handgun twice and some should fire the Taser twice.

When the officer fires the Taser he should shout "Taser" as he draws his weapon, but before he fires the Taser.  The officer should also practice the contact Taser and the reloading of the Taser cartridge.  The Taser should be worn on the non-handgun side and fired with the non-handgun hand; that's what the SGT Says.
