WCSO reserve officers get tasers

A recent donation from a private individual provided 10 tasers to the reserve officers serving the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

At an approximate cost of $1,000 each, the WCSO is phasing in the purchase of tasers, and it could have been several years before the reserve officers received them.

Because the WCSO cannot accept cash contributions, the donor went directly to the taser manufacturer and ordered them shipped to the WCSO with a designation for the Reserve Officer Program.
