Jersey could be tasered
|Cop appears to be enjoying the experience|
Jersey Police are one step closer to getting taser guns.
The Home Affairs Minister has responded to a report by a Scrutiny Panel which oversees the work that his department carries out.
Ian Le Marquand has agreed to several of their suggestions of what needs to be done before taser guns could be used in the island including addressing public concerns about their dangers.
He will draw up a report on why he thinks we should have tasers, and the States will vote on it.
Jersey Police say they cannot comment on whether the force want to carry taser guns or not.
What do you think?
Should our bobby's on the beat carry tasers?
Should the police be allowed to use tasers here in Jersey or are they simply unnecessary?
