Commission delays Gascón’s Taser policy

The SFPD will have to keep waiting for a decision on Tasers.

After hours of testimony and questions at the Police Commission Wednesday night about the safety of Tasers, and five years after another failed attempt to implement them in San Francisco, the seven-member civilian body decided to delay a vote on their use.

An affirmative vote would have allowed police Chief George Gascón only to develop a policy to bring back to the Police Commission in about 90 days for a second approval. The matter will come up again in two weeks.
