Sterling Heights police is taking Taser training to an electrifying new level.

Sgt. Aaron Susalla posting a video on social media with his boss, Capt. Kenneth Pappas.

"It's not everyday somebody gets to Taser their boss and keep their job afterwards," quipped Susalla. 

FOX 2: "So is this about the training or did you just want to taze your boss?"

"I don't know if there's anybody out there who doesn't have a boss, but for everybody that does, it's a huge perk of it," he said.

Asking fellow facebookers for 300 likes - which they reached in the first half-hour.

That led to Capt. Pappas to receive a couple of prongs to the back for training purposes of course.
"I'd like to thank everyone for all of their likes," he said.

To spread community awareness, Susalla streamed the Taser training on Facebook.
"We get a lot of questions about the Taser as far as how does it work, when do we use it, any effects that go along with it," Susalla said.
Susalla says when the prongs attach, it causes neuromuscular incapacitation. The body essentially tenses up with most unable to control their muscles.
"Pain is a side effect of the Taser," he said. 

The video got more than 1,200 likes and Pappas prepared for those 50,000 volts.

"I would call it a growl, a manly growl," Susalla said about Pappas' response from the procedure. "We are going to use it for a training video for new officers to see the effects of the Taser on the body."
