There's 'no evidence' Tasers reduce police use of firearms, new study shows

Research released this week finds that the Chicago Police Department's adoption of Tasers resulted in a reduction in officer injury but no effect on firearm use by law enforcement.
"We find no substitutions between Tasers and firearms," Professor Jeffrey Grogger told CNBC. The study reviewed 36,112 use-of-force incidents in Chicago.
Precincts have started adopting or increasing use of less-than-lethal force – including pepper spray and Tasers – in an effort to reduce injury and death.
Axon Enterprise – the maker of Taser – changed its name in 2017, adopting the title of its police body camera segment as a part of its shift into software services.
