Following a successful six-month trial program in which Schaumburg patrol officers shared the use of 12 Tasers, the police department plans to buy 30 more to ensure that every on-duty officer has one. The Tasers were used three times during the trial period. Two of those times, their threatened use was enough to subdue a person, while on the third occasion one was deployed. The village board will vote on the purchase of the 30 additional Tasers -- for a total of $71,922 -- at its June 25 meeting.
