ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

Turner County Sheriff Office deputies trained on new X2 taser models Monday.

The newer editions are able to hold more cartridges which makes policing easier according to one official.

"They can select which one, which cartridge to use, they can just give the person an additional charge if they need to rather than just shoot them with another," said Houston County Sheriff Office Corporal Larry Eric Phillips. "It's going to be much more effective, its going to be safer for them."

Officers were able to start using the newer models once they finish training Monday.
