Vandalia's police officers now armed with tasers

-A A +A
By Rich Bauer, Managing Editor

Twelve of the Vandalia Police Departments officers recently completed a days worth of training on the departments newest piece of equipment. The 13th officer was unable to complete that training because he was disabled from an injury he sustained in the line of duty, an injury that could have been prevented through the use of that new equipment.

The city recently purchased for the department tasers, a gun-like device that can be used to temporarily stun an individual who is resisting arrest or threatening bodily harm to an officer or another individual.
