For most deployments, hold the CEW level. Tilt the CEW when necessary to align the CEW probes with the target.
All TASER CEW deployments should be in accordance with current TASER training and warnings, and department training, policies and procedures.
When possible, aim the LASERs at the preferred target areas of the body, which are the lower torso and legs when the subject is facing you, or the subject’s back if the subject is turned away from you.
When possible, avoid intentionally targeting the CEW on sensitive areas of the body such as the head, eyes, throat, chest/breast, groin, or known pre-existing injury areas without legal justification.
The top probe is designed to impact the target near the top LASER beam but exact placement can vary depending on numerous factors, including but not limited to, the distance, type of cartridge and environmental factors. If both the upper and lower LASERs are active, you should be able to estimate where each probe will hit.
If a single cartridge is deployed and an electrical circuit is completed and maintained, the CEW will be relatively quiet. Multiple cartridge deployments and Warning Arc displays are likely to make more noise.
