Maryland Attorney General releases Task Force report on Electronic Control Weapons.


WTOP radio yesterday reported that the Maryland Attorney General’s office had just released the Task Force report regarding the use of Electronic Control Weapons (ECWs).

ECWs are more commmonly referred to as; TASERs.
They have become very popular with Police Departments as a less lethal weapon. They have also been adapted in other parts of the world.

As a matter of fact, over 14,000 Law Enforcement Agencies in more than 40 countries have invested in TASERs…406,000 of them and counting. Many people might be surprised to find out that they have also become very popular amongst civilians. More than 196,000 have been sold to non-Law Enforcement personnel.

Sexton Executive Security is one of the few security companies in the World to not only have TASERs, but to also be equipped to offer training. Our Training Academy boasts of a former Law Enforcement Trainer who is also certified by the manufacturer themselves.

Our latest acquisition is a high-tech weapons simulation system with over 300 reality based scenarios, containing hands-on TASER training. The training provides for reality based scenarios and induces the same stress conditions and real life situations that can occur on the job and in defending one’s self.

The AG’s Task Force report is extremely comprehensive and contains more than 60 specific recommendations. These recommendations include extensive training requirements for Police and civilians alike.

Surprisingly, there are little to no current training requirements for civilians who wish to purchase, carry and use TASERS as a self defense tool. This despite the fact that the civilan model, the C2, has a 30 second electric shock cycle which is 6 times longer than the Police cycle of 5 seconds!

Anyone considering purchasing a C2 Taser, would do well to read the Task Force report. The full report can be viewed at; www.oag.state.md.us/reports/ecwreport.pdf.
