Posted: Updated:
(06/10/14) - Flint patrol officers will soon have a new tool to arrest criminals - Tasers.
     
The chief is hoping this will cut down on officer and prisoner injuries.

"When you don't have a tool like this, you have to go hands on, there is a possibility that either the officer or the individual being arrested could be injured, so with this, there is automatic compliance," said Chief  James Tolbert

Tolbert goes on to say there are enough Tasers for every patrol officer and officers will start carrying them on Wednesday.
