JCSO additional taser training

(Hillsboro) The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is planning on additional training for officers that are armed with tasers in the future. Sheriff Dave Marshak says they want to make sure the organization is doing their part to make sure deputies are as knowledgeable as possible.

The additional training of tasers comes in light of the recent incident in Minnesota where an officer pulled and fired her sidearm, while mistakenly thought she had pulled the taser. 20-year old Duante Wright was shot and killed as a result of the incident.
