Older Taser models now used by law enforcement agencies and civilians throughout the country have to be reloaded after one shot, which can be a problem for an officer who has missed a target or has more than one suspect they want to shock.

Taser, based in Scottsdale, Ariz., unveiled the new device at its annual conference Monday in nearby Fountain Hills to hundreds of law enforcement officers and distributors. The conference also will include training for those officers on the new device.

The new Taser costs $1,799, compared to the older device, which costs $799.
