Only if the department requires their officers to carry a tazer. If so, then yes, all officers must be tasered

If you do get tazered, you should make sure you Have no muscle injuries or heart problems, as this could cause major problems to your health if tazered. If you were ever born with a heart murmur ot have muscle spasms do not get tazered.

I hold a taser. There is High Medium Low voltage.

in police training. Low voltage on a taser/tazer is Painful, But.. You will only have to do it for about a second then release.

Being tased is one of the most painful way of dieing.

You would most likely to die on high voltage.

Depends, of course. An officer can 'threaten' you with arrest if, say, he is arresting someone else and you are starting to interfere. An officer can 'threaten' a suspect with being sprayed, tasered or even shot, if the suspect is resisting arrest or endangers the safety of himself, the general public or the officers themselves. A police officer cannot simply approach a member of the public and issue threats for no real reason of course. This would be harassment.
