CJK 0422 - Dart-Firing Stun Gun

Credit Hours: 0.3

Prerequisite(s): None
Corequisite(s): None

Stun guns are one type of electronic control device (ECD), electronic immobilization device, conducted energy weapon (CEW), or conducted energy device (CED), which is a device that uses a high voltage, low power electrical charge to induce involuntary muscle contractions to temporarily incapacitate a noncompliant subject. The progression of technology allowed for the development of the basic hand-held stun gun into a weapon that propels darts up to 35 feet. This weapon is called the dart-firing stun gun (DFSG); it propels electrified darts/probes/electrodes/barbs (these terms will be used interchangeably throughout this chapter). The use and effects of dart-firing stun guns have been a topic of discussion in the media, among law enforcement officers and administrators, and within scientific and medical professions .This course will introduce an officer to the basics of the stun gun, particularly the dart-firing stun gun, and will provide knowledge of its practical use.
