Citizen's Police Academy: Week 11
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- For 10 weeks, CBS 2 has taken you behind the scenes of the Cedar Rapids Police Department. As we approach the end of that journey, there is one more lesson students have to learn - the power and responsibility that comes with an electronic control device.
CRPD uses the X-26 Taser, one type of electronic control device. Police Chief Wayne Jerman says it's the most effective tool he's experienced since he joined law enforcement. He says it reduces injuries on both ends - suspect and officer.
Academy students who were brave enough got a taste of just how effective it is.
