Regional law enforcement officials learn practical training for the instruction of the use of TASERs, today. Today’s training at the Oxford Civic Center was conducted by TASER International and was specifically created for instructors. According to participants, TASERs provide the non – lethal electrical weapon that law enforcement officers need. It’s a helpful tool to subdue aggressive and potentially dangerous people, who would have otherwise been subjected to more lethal weapons. The one-day course certifies law enforcement officers, military personnel, and licensed professional security employees for two years. It offers online instruction as well as practical training and students are expected to pass several knowledge assessments and written tests. The course also included several drills requiring physical exertion.
