VIDEO: Officers from Small California Agency Training to Use Nunchuks

The Anderson (CA) Police Department will start using nunchucks as a way to forcibly restrain suspects.

Though nunchucks are not new to law enforcement, they are making a comeback in Shasta County.

Nunchucks are illegal for citizens to own in California; however, police can be certified to use them within the state. The ones used by officers are made of plastic and are connected with a nylon rope, KRCR TV reports.

Sgt. Casey Day was recently certified to use nunchucks for the Anderson Police Department. He explained the different ways they can be used to help law enforcement. He said they can be used to hit, strike, jab and take someone down. They can also be used as a restraint to lock someone's hand, elbow or ankle.

This is news? San Diego PD (and others) had these years ago. Interesting to see them coming back around, as it were.
