Probe: Police Find Issues With Efficacy of Tasers

Tasers are carried by some 400,000 American patrol officers, according to Axon, the company with a monopoly on producing them in the U.S. Though the electrical weapons are widely used, police in major cities rate them as less effective, APM Reports found in its yearlong investigation, according to NPR. In more than 250 cases over three years, a Taser failed to subdue someone who was then shot and killed by police.

The probe found that police rate Tasers as less effective than their manufacturer has claimed; cops in three major cities report their current Tasers aren’t as effective as previous models; when Tasers fail to subdue suspects, police sometimes end up shooting them; cops often use Tasers in the ranges where they are not reliably effective; and that Axon’s new Taser 7 tries to address the problem by adopting a design feature from a former competitor’s weapons that dates to the 1970s.
