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.
