Illinois State Police to issue more Tasers
CHICAGO (KPLR) – More Illinois state troopers will receive tasers, state-of-the-art ones that can record video of all traffic stops.
The Chicago Sun-Times says, the Illinois State Police will now give these weapons to every patrol trooper and Sergeant.
Before, tasers were only issued on a limited basis.
The state police points to research, that shows tasers are an effective tool.
Tasers can immobilize a person with a high-voltage charge.
