Posted on June 25, 2015 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday green-lighted their local police department’s proposal to acquire Tasers, a device that officials believe will better enable officers to control aggressive and assaultive suspects without having to resort to deadly force.
