The Takoma Park Police Department has a fun community activity scheduled next week. On September 7, officers will demonstrate for residents their arsenal of non-lethal weapons that they use to stun would-be getaway criminals.
Takoma Park police are eager to show off the benefits they’ve experienced in using Tasers in chasing down suspects. The electronic deterrents have provided many advantages to law enforcement efforts, the department boasted on its website earlier this month. At the forum next Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the Takoma Park Community Center, officers will share some of the ways their work has been improved by the use of Tasers.
