Detail

Accompanying data tables are available at ‘Police use of Taser statistics, England and Wales, 2009 to 2011: data tables’.

The figures show the number of Taser ‘uses’ as opposed to the number of Taser ‘incidents’. This is designed to ensure full transparency on Taser deployment as there may be more than one ‘use’ of Taser at an ‘incident’. Every time a Taser is used (fired, angle-drive stunned, drive stunned, red-dotted, arced, aimed or drawn) a record is made by the police officer and a short form is submitted.

The publication includes these sections :

  • summary
  • background
  • total Taser use
  • breakdown of Taser use
  • data quality and use of data
