At Hero 911, we understand that many of the people who visit our site – and our blog – come from different professional backgrounds. Some of you are current police officers, working the beat every day and/or night. Others are retired officers who have already logged countless hours keeping our streets safe. There may even be some visitors who want to pursue a career in law enforcement sometime in the near future. Whatever your background may be, chances are you currently have, have had, or will eventually have authorization to carry some pretty serious defensive and offensive weaponry: a gun, handcuffs, pepper spray, baton, etc. But there’s one weapon in particular that we’d like to focus on. In this article, we’re discussing what it takes to own and responsibly use a police-issued taser gun.
