TASER/Electronic Stun Device Certification

Used correctly, a handheld stun device will allow you to retreat from an attack and get away to safety. By applying the weapon to the body of the attacker and pressing the trigger mechanism, you are injecting a large electrical load of energy into their body. This overwhelms the person's nerves and causes severe pain and discomfort.

 

Security guards learn about a force continuum in which they understand the appropriate levels of force that is legal to use when suspected intruders trespass or attempt to trespass in protected areas or when a violent criminal commits an act.

When deadly force may not be necessary, it simply makes sense to have an option between physical strength, which is finite, and a bullet, which is fatal. After all, TASER guns emit electrical charges that only temporarily incapacitate individuals but they incapacitate them. If a suspect is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or in emotional distress, the TASER gun will subdue him or her successfully without causing permanent injury.

Security guards put themselves in the face of danger every shift they work. Though their job description does not require them to make arrests, it does ask that the security guards do everything in their power to keep their post criminal-free. However, training for security guards is rigorous and physical fitness is of utmost importance, sometimes a protective device like the TASER gun is what it takes to keep all parties involved safe.

The T.A.S.E.R. is a handheld device that incapacitates a person by transmitting a 50,000-volt electric shock. The Taser fires two small darts, connected to the device with thin wires, up to a distance of approximately 11 metres (35 feet). The darts can penetrate clothing and, once they make contact with the target, deliver the electric shock, which disrupts the target’s nervous system, resulting in temporary incapacitation.

This class is held on Wednesdays at 2pm.
