Can a civilain get a police taser (tazer sp?) and do all officers have to be tasered, I would like to know what it is like how painful or ...I am curious the poeple I have seen get this done it dosen't look like fun but then you hear stories of death or you see a old women get it but I think anyone who can'r do as LEO asked needs to be tased or be put on the ground, Anyhow I am curious and if a civilain could where could you find it OR is there tasers that are like the LEO's on the market. I have a interest in them when I was younger I had a interest in guns I never owned one back then I don't have that interest any more I own some.

 All LEOs (reserves and full-time) are required to go through Taser training at the police academy (in-house training for reserves). Even Corrections and Detention Officers are required the same training if they are required to carry Taser while on-the-job. I have been tased and OC'd and frankly would take the Taser over OC ANYDAY! Ride lightning only lasts for 5 seconds while OC stays on you for hours and it gets worse if you have sensitive skin.


Try googling on police Taser and see what you find. It's not that difficult.......

i will give you a qualified no.  CIvilians are generally restrictred (by taser corp) from getting police tasers, however taser makes a civilian version of the police taser that is different from the police taser in some respects, but designed for the civilian market.  as IA9erFan said go to the taser website and your questions will be ansered there.

I am NOT a LEO but have to respectfully disagree with IowaNinersFan, not all LEOs have to be tased. My Agency does not have tasers thus would not have to be tased. From what I have been told by LEOs from different Agencies that do have tasers, it depends on the Agency as far as the LEO being tased. Some Agencies require any officer carrying a taser be tased but it is not mandatory for a leo to carry one with their Agency. I have also been told by some leos that their Agency reccomends but does not require the leo be tased. .I do agree with him though that most of the leos say they would rather be tased than the pepper sprayed. I have only met one leo who said he'd rather be sprayed than tased.

 Depending on your state.  You may need a permit ccw etc. in my state you eed a valid handgun permit to even carry the civilian version of taser is what I have been told and found on my own

I hear ya so now do you think the civilain taser is just as good as the police one or a taser is a taser as long as it works right. Any LEO ever use one that it didn't work, I hear you can loose fluids to when tased. how many volts ( are they volts or amps in the tasers) are in the police taser.

Since I am wodering here do all police depts in the USA I know this is a tough one since not all know the laws in all the USA but do all carry the smae weapon I talk to one LEO and he liked the glock (sp?) some like the 38 some 44 but I assumed it was personal choice that is their own weapon I thought maybe the issue is the same anywhere.

Since you are a civilian I am not comfortable with your line of questions. My suggestion is to go to your local cop shop and axe. Go for a ridealong and pick the officers brain and he/she may respond to your questions. I question your motive.

Just do a google search on the X-26c and you will get all the answers you need about the civilian taser.


Based on your line of questioning you are starting to look like a troll. Just saying..........

I am a civilian with a law enforcement agency ( Code Enforcement) and our department requires us to carry the X26 taser, the same as our Officers.  We have to go to yearly re-certification both written and practical and we do not have to be tasered, unless you are crazy enough to volunteer or forget to turn it off before removing the dart.  It will get your attention!  We did have to be pepper sprayed so we would know what it feels like. But. like all the tools we use, the taser like pepper spray has its draw backs.
