In response to recent fatal police shootings, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed to increase the number of Tasers in the Chicago Police Department.

The business of Tasers

Taser International, a leading law enforcement technology company, could benefit from efforts in Chicago and other cities to increase the use of Tasers, billed as a non-lethal weapon. In response to officer-involved shootings, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and other city leaders are calling for more police officers to be trained in the use of the electroshock devices.
