An independent investigation commissioned by the Montgomery County Police Department determined that its officers are not overusing tasers, as a Baltimore Sun investigation had previously suggested. In fact, it called the department’s taser policies a model for police across the nation. In response, activists have questioned the thoroughness of the investigation, as well as its timing.
