CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- Another area police department will get to use a taser. The Thomasboro village board approved the proposal at a meeting this week.

Urbana officers also plan to ask for tasers at a city council meeting this month. Champaign County sheriff's deputies, Illinois State Police and University of Illinois officers already use them.
