NYPD's use of TASERs down for 2008

By Rocco Parascandola
Newsday

NEW YORK — New York City police officers have used Tasers far less often since September, when an emotionally disturbed man fell to his death after he was stunned with 5,000 volts of electricity during a dramatic confrontation in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

According to police statistics, Tasers have been used in New York City 269 times through Dec. 7. At that pace, the controversial device will have been used about 288 times this year, down from 315 for all of last year.
