River Falls Police Sergeant Mike Reardon offers people a closer look at the used ends of a taser after demonstrating how the device works last Thursday afternoon in the new Public Safety Building garage. Reardon fired the taser at an aluminum foil covered piece of cardboard to demonstrate its range and effectiveness during the Public Safety Building open house held in conjunction with Town N' Country Day.
