The Arc of North Carolina Signs on to Taser Letter

The Arc of North Carolina signed onto the American Civil Liberties Union letter to the state Sheriffs Association, addressing the need for a comprehensive statewide policy on the use of Tasers. The Arc of North Carolina supports this letter due to a growing concern regarding the use of Tasers on people with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
It is imperative that law enforcement personnel are trained to communicate and interact effectively with people with disabilities.
