Police in California shared a video of an officer getting shocked with a taser, which the office claims is part of a training procedure.

The strange 30-second video shows an officer at Placer County Sheriff's Office getting shocked with the x26 taser, which the video says is a "less lethal use of force".

In the clip, Deputy Don Nevins, who recently joined the Sheriff's Office can be seen wincing in pain before doubling over due to the electric shock, which the office kindly enforces staff to endure once a year.

People commenting on the video had mixed reactions to the deputy's task.

"I still don't understand why we had to go through this training. I never had to get shot with my gun to carry one. I hate being shocked with electricity," one person wrote.

"Welcome to California, Salute to you Officer Don," another wrote.
