Taser Guidelines

by Jessica Cervantez

Another death in Texas, after the use of a taser gun. This time a man died in Fort Worth after being tased while in police custody.

The death is bringing even more attention to what guidelines police officers in East Texas have to follow when using tasers.

In Nacogdoches, any police officer who will use a taser is required to go through special training and they have all been tased themselves. Anytime a taser is used on somebody that person is immediately taken to a hospital to get checked out to ensure safety.
