AZUSA, Calif. — The city voted to invest about $50,000 to purchase stun gun equipment for each of its police officers.
TASERs, devices that subdue people by delivering 50,000- volt electrical shocks, have grown in popularity among law enforcement agencies. While various human rights organizations question the safety and ethics of their use, authorities said the devices are nonlethal and save lives.
