PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Police Department has agreed to buy 1,000 TASERs to expand the use of less-than-lethal weapons by officers often called upon to deal with unruly, mentally ill people.

The cost, about $850,000, will be paid from a pool of federal stimulus money the city received last year.
