San Miguel County Sheriff Benjie Vigil has fellow sheriffs in his corner in the effort to convince the County Commission to approve the sheriff’s use of Tasers.
Vigil told county commissioners during a public forum on the electroshock weapon that he was down to four deputies plus himself. He said Tasers would be a good tool to help his understaffed department.
Commission Chairman David Salazar said a decision on the use of Tasers by the Sheriff’s Department may be made at Wednesday’s commission meeting.
