Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Broome County Law Enforcement Academy Recruits complete another portion of their training, and it wasn't without a little shock.

35 recruits lined up for taser training Tuesday morning.

Academy instructors said while they don't enjoy doing the training, it's important for the recruits to be familiar with the feeling before they use it in the field.
