Grand jury recommends Tasers for Menlo Park

 

Menlo Park is a rarity in San Mateo County, one of only two cities that doesn't arm police officers with Taser guns.

The county civil grand jury would like to change that.

A grand jury report released May 24 stated Tasers were fired 130 times in the county within the past two years, with no reports of death or serious injury.

Finding non-lethal alternatives appealing, the jury recommended that both Menlo Park and East Palo Alto add Tasers to their law enforcement toolbox.
