Is it legal for civilians to carry a taser in public or is it a prohibited weapon? Do DRPS members carry them? (loaded question I know......sorry)

Tasers are a prohibited weapon; therefore, illegal for civilians to carry.

Currently, the only two units at DRP carrying tasers are the Tactical Support Unit and the Nuclear Security Division. DRP supervisors will be equipped with tasers in the future, after completing the necessary training.
