Taser & Police Officers with Taser Titans on The Cop Doc Radio Show

A few police chiefs, full-time, and reserve police officers have lost their jobs over Taser controversies that erupted in their communities. Hailed by some as a useful law enforcement tool that avoids escalating situations and officer, as well as suspect, injuries, the device has also been derided as a torture device by some groups. Police officers, deputy sheriffs, and their leaders increasingly need to ponder the role that Taser can take within their department's response to resistance.

Taser Titans will be talking to law enforcers and non-police folks alike when Taser International chairman Tom Smith and vice president Steve Tuttle are guests for the full hour on The Cop Doc Radio Show on Thursday, May 18, 2011 at 7:00 pm eastern time. The two men are part of the orignal team of six that founded the company. The show is also available on demand at the The Cop Doc Taser Titans show link and as downloadable podcasts on Apple iTunes.

Hosted by police expert former police chief Dr. Richard Weinblatt, The Cop Doc, the radio show will showcase a balanced look at the Taser and why it has become an electriftying lightning rod for local police departments and sheriff's offices. Also discussed will be new innovations and products including the Taser X2, described by Steve Tuttle as a customer driven and designed product.

Taser International, based in Scottsdale, AZ, is the largest of the electorinic control device (ECD) firms and provides products to the law enforcement, military, and general public.

The show is being publicized to police chiefs, sheriffs, police officers, reserve officers, and the public in an effort to encourage conversation and dispel misunderstandings.
