MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Students learned more about why Myrtle Beach Police officers use lethal and less-lethal force when responding to calls. This year's theme is "A Rose By Any Other Name" and honors Shakespeare, who certainly knew a thing or two about writing, and turning a flowery phrase. It shoots a combination of capsules filled with baby powder and others filled with OC spray, which is the pepper-like chemical that makes your eyes burn and makes you cough.

The cloud of powder scatters the crowd before the situation escalates.Another less-lethal tool each officer is trained to use is the taser.
Then the taser will pulse electricity into your muscles for five seconds, immobilizing you. The officers are trained to fire between seven and 15 feet from the suspect for the best results, but the taser has 21 feet of wire.
The two main spots an officer aims for are your back and your legs.These tools are used to get a situation under control so that an officer does not have to shoot his or her gun. But each officer is trained to use these tools carefully, because there is always a huge liability using any force at all.


So they will never intentionally aim for the head, neck, or groin, and officers will not use a taser on a pregnant woman or a child.To get a taste for when an officer would decide to use lethal force, students took turns in the Firearms Training Simulator (FATS).
It’s like a big video game, but the gun is designed to shoot a laser instead of bullets.
