Armstrong campus police undergo stun gun training

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A two-day class began Wednesday to prepare officers to carry Tasers, and make sure they know how to handle them.

A few also had to go through the process of actually being tased in order to feel the effect that it has on those unfortunate suspects.

"It feels like a large amount of electricity going through your body. And it does affect your muscles. It kind of like freezes them up and it doesn't allow you to utilize the movement and you do get a warm sensation over your body," said Officer John McNamara.

Officer McNamara said being tased has a lesser long-term effect than being maced.

Armstrong Police will officially be issued their tasers on Monday.
