On July, 17, 2014 at 1:00 PM, the Riley County Police Department will be hosting a Media Day for the purpose of focusing on TASER technology and its use in Riley County. RCPD will be inviting all area news agencies as well as a limited number of community members, due to size of venue, to join them in this two hour long educational experience.

During the event, RCPD’s TASER Instructors will educate participants on departmental training as well as the science behind TASER. They will also give a few participants the chance to experience an exposure to the electronic control device.

Police officers with the Riley County Police Department have been using TASER for several years and have seen a decrease in the officer and suspect risk of injury as a result.

If you wish to attend this event contact the department’s Public Information Officer for more information as well as an application to participate. Applicants must pass a simple background check and be in good standing with the community and department. The deadline to apply is July 15, 2014 at 1:00 PM.
