Brandon Police are adding Tasers to their duty belts. (See story in the Feb. 26 Brandon Valley Challenger.) There doesn’t appear to be problems in Brandon that require Tasers, but Brandon Police Chief Dave Kull said he made the proposal as a preventive measure because Sioux Falls police officers were injured while trying to get a suspect there into custody.
Apparently, Sioux Falls police don’t use Tasers.
Kull said the Tasers probably will replace the pepper spray Brandon Police now carry.
Do you think Tasers are a good idea for Brandon Police?
