The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Friday that it will restrict its use of Taser stun guns in response to a watchdog agency report that officers were firing them too often.
The police force said it will more clearly define the type of behavior that would prompt an officer to use a Taser, limiting it to situations where "a subject is displaying combative behaviors or is being actively resistant."
The previous policy allowed officers to use a Taser when a suspect's behavior was deemed threatening.
