In the second Taser Letter, Thomas Troetti, attorney for the Rye Police Association, in a letter to Rye Police Commissioner William Connors and Assistant City Manager Scott Pickup, says officers may have to use physical force as a result of an inability to use the department tasers. "There is no holder even available for use." says the letter. It continues:
"Please know that the PBA is putting you on written notice that because the members of this Police Department do not have ready available access to the Tasers, under the appropriate circumstances, members of the PBA may have to resort to more physical force than is reasonably necessary within the continuum of force.
While it is not our intention to enhance the legal liability of the City of Rye should one of the members of the PBA, or the general public, be seriously injured the PBA must officially "go on record" that it has exhausted all means to convince you to finally deploy these Tasers."
