When the person is peaceful, or when ordinary force is all that is necessary to subdue someone.

there has to be a level of resistanse or force used by the suspect person to warrant the use of any force by police. Now keep in mind that each department is different and their policies are not the same. One department may allow the use if the subject does not comply with verbal orders and another may only allow use if the subject becomes violent

while on duty, Police officers need to be able to defend themselves and others. That is their job. Taser's may be painful, but a lot better than getting shot.

The simplest answer is when the person in question is complying with the officers commands. In practice this is more of a judgement issue. A police officer is allowed to use "necessary and reasonable force" to gain compliance from uncooperative subjects. Hopefully the city, county or whatever jurisdiction that hired the officer in question has a thorough background check and high standards for their officers. This is the best way to prevent abuse or even criminal acts by police.

Depending on your state laws, generally tasers can be used when a person is resisting arrest is in some sort of way or when an officer needs to defend himself or another person. See the use of force laws for your state.
