Deyo Community Complex. Doing the tasing is Yuma County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Richard Mendez, one of the academy instructors. Each recruit in the class was required to be tased, in a controlled environment, with the purpose of making them aware of what they are dealing with in situations where non-lethal force is needed. Sumner is a Kingman Police Department recruit. The recruits will graduate March 4.{/span} {span}Photo by Randy Hoeft/Yuma Sun{/span}
