The Lawrence Police Department wants to start a pilot project that could lead to all patrol officers carrying Tasers.

Check out their draft Taser Policy

The purpose of this policy is to provide officers with guidance and direction on the use of electronic control devices.

It is the policy of the Lawrence Police Department to use only that level of force that is reasonably necessary to prevent harm to an officer or another person or to effect a lawful arrest. ECDs may be used by authorized and trained personnel in accordance with the use of force policy and additional guidelines established herein. Link to Proposed city policy for Taser use
