Rearming Solomon Islands Police Force
Perhaps as an interim measure the government could consider arming the Solomon Islands police force with tasers rather than firearms.Tasers are proving to be an effective tool in both deterring and controlling crime in Queensland Australia. The biggest advantage is the taser provides significant protection for the police officer, and when discharged on a victim, temporarily immobilizes the victim without killing or permanently maiming them.
