BART to Issue TASERs to Every Officer

May 27, 2011  | 

All Bay Area Rapid Transit officers will soon be issued TASERs, so they won't have to check out the devices from a common pool.

The agency's board on Thursday approved the purchase of 130 of the electronic control devices. The $140,775 purchase of the additional stun guns was recommended by outside consultants following the fatal 2009 New Year's Day shooting of Oscar Grant by then BART police officer Johannes Mehserle.
