SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

The Selma Police Department will soon be getting a new weapon in their fight against crime.

The Selma City Council voted unanimously to arm officers with stun guns. The city will purchase 27 stun guns at a cost of around 36 thousand dollars.

Mayor George Evans says he hopes it will allow the police department to take less lethal measures when in danger.
