Lean over in the shower and squirt baby shampoo straight into your eyes. We get to dunk 3 times then have to air dry or shower. Showering immediately with soap works better every time I've seen it.

Never got tased because of the whole water thing but I'd take OC again if necessary. You gotta wipe some under your eyes every so often to build up your immunity.

My dept will be issuing tasers to TACT (SWAT) and 20 CIT officers for a 90 day test phase. After the test phase, all CIT officers will be issued tasers but only if they take the 5 second ride. I'll be in the test group

We've been discussing the best way to carry it and it looks like it'll be cross-draw. Vests and thigh holsters were discussed. I don't have any real estate on my belt as it is !!!! What rig do y'all use ?

It took a full 3 minutes to have any effect on me. Then...agony. It gave me enough time to whack the Red Man a few times, prone out and cuff a "suspect", then drag my partner over to the wash station. I can't remember the exact order of things, but I think we were gassed and sprayed in the same day.

I do mine with no cant, holds my mag light better for me. Great place for it when you're doing things like pulling prints or getting info from a victim and no perp is around.

most the officers I know that have a taser donít carry any one their belt. some keep it in the car just incase they need some.

i bet they would come in handy where you are. I have heard they will send twice as many officers on most calls than other departments send. like if most or some send 2 or 3 officer, they send 5 or 6 down their.

3 officers on mental case calls and 2 on any kind of a disturbance. Most everybody is good about pulling over on any stop and most other calls. The last couple of years have been pretty wild here.
