Toronto police board to consider issuing more Tasers for officers

This was posted more than 12 months ago. The information may be outdated.

Nigel Barriffe, president of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations, said he’s “very disappointed” by the recommendation. He believes that making Tasers available to more police officers increases the likelihood of its use when they come into contact with someone in distress.

“The idea of purchasing more weapons for front-line police officers does not give me faith that it will keep all of the members of society safe,” he said.
