Stun Cuffs Cowing the Most Violent Offenders
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Shelby County Sheriff's Office is saying they are having good luck with a new compliance device in the courtroom, even with the County's most violent of inmates.
Stun cuffs on the market pack a punch of up to 80-thousand volts and have a range of 100 yards. But, as in our local jail at the Criminal Justice Center down at 201 Poplar, the devices are not allowed to be applied directly to an inmate's skin. They have to be placed on top of a sock or other material first. They still leave a burn.
