The Pima County Sheriff's Department has some new
firepower equipment out on the streets, having recently upgraded its Tasers to the new X2 model.
This bad boy, according to a press release, "allows for more accuracy, dual shot and warning arc capabilities, and is more rugged and durable in its design." It also looks like something out of RoboCop, which is never a bad thing.
The new stun guns were paid for with proceeds from drug seizures, PCSD says, though the department did manage to get more than $200,000 off the purchase price by trading in about 700 older models.
