Salt Lake City, Fort Worth review ethics rules amid concern about chiefs' ties to Taser

At least two cities have started reviewing their ethics policies after The Associated Press reported about police chiefs who were closely linked to a company that supplies body cameras.

Officials in Salt Lake City and Fort Worth, Texas, said their chiefs' relationships with Taser International didn't violate current policies but could highlight potential shortcomings.

The Texas Police Chiefs Association also says it'll review such relationships, saying they likely violate its ethics code.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Taser International had financial ties to current and former chiefs who promote its body cameras and video storage system.

The company is paying for airfare and hotels for chiefs who travel to speak at conferences and appear in company materials praising the products. Some chiefs have become Taser consultants after retiring.
