Three Democratic candidates for San Miguel County sheriff said the Sheriff’s Department should be able to use Tasers, which are electroshock weapons.

Candidates for sheriff and magistrate judge took questions during a forum on Thursday sponsored by the Highlands University Graduate Student Senate.
