Local Police Department Buys New Semi-Automatic Taser
January 27, 2011 TAVARES, Fla. -- A Central Florida police department is putting a new Taser on the streets that packs not one, but three electrifying shots.
Tavares police believe the powerful tool will let them subdue suspects before they harm officers or themselves.
The new model is called the X3. It can be fired three times in rapid succession without the officer having to reload. That means up to three suspects can be stunned, or one especially unruly suspect can be stunned more than once.
"If they're moving around, and you don't get both probes into the person, or into the party, then they just keep doing what they're doing because it doesn't affect them," said Capt. Danny Felicia with Tavares police.
