Dear P1 Member,

Very few topics in law enforcement generate the level of passion and interest that less lethal does. So when TASER's recent bulletin advising against chest strikes broke this week, it led to a range of reactions and concerns. Read the article below for our summary of some experts' responses, as well as our complete news report on the issue.

TASER CEO Rick Smith and General Counsel Doug Klint will be holding a conference call this coming Monday at 11AM Eastern to answer questions and further explain the intent of the bulletin. If you have questions about what the bulletin means for you and your department, visit www.policeone.com/taser_bulletin for conference call details (verified law enforcement only).

— Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Senior Editor
