AB 1406 – Prohibits A Law Enforcement Officer Who Carries A Taser Or Stun Gun From Carrying It On The Same Side Of The Body As The Officer’s Primary Firearm
Existing law places certain restrictions on the use of force by law enforcement agencies and requires law enforcement agencies to maintain a policy on the use of force. AB 1406 continues the Legislature’s recent trend of mandating specific provisions for such policies.
The bill requires that a law enforcement agency that authorizes peace officers to carry an electroshock device, such as a taser or stun gun, must prohibit officers from carrying that device on the same side of the officer’s body where the officer’s primary firearm is holstered.
(AB 1406 adds Section 13660 to the Penal Code.)
