La PORTE — La Porte Police Chief Paul Brettin is making his officer's safety a priority as they step up enforcement across the city.

During its meeting earlier this month, the La Porte Board of Public Works and Safety approved a request from Brettin to seek bids for several new Tasers. The stun guns, estimated to cost between $1,000 to $1,100 apiece, will replace five aging devices the board has authorized the department to destroy.
