Manchester Police Department Using New Tasers

For the past few months, the Manchester Police Department has been using new tasers.

The police department first starting using the tasers about ten years ago, but late last year, they started showing signs of failing due to their age. Chief Jim Hauschild was grateful when the City Council gave the department the okay to purchase new ones – he says of all the technology in the last two decades, tasers and body cameras are the two things he would never go without.

Chief Hauschild says Manchester’s police officers have tasers and body cams on them at all times while on duty.
