ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the installation of video cameras on the Jefferson Parish Sherriff's 681 Tasers to create permanent records of every use of the weapons in Louisiana. According to Office Firing Range Commander Jeff Eddy, the records will enhance officer accountability, provide evidence for use in court, factual references for report writing, discredit frivolous complaints, corroborate officers' statements and identify issues involving the use of Tasers for training and policy purposes.
