Date - 22nd November 2019 By - Chris Smith A report by the Police Investigations & Review Commissioner (PIRC) concluded the vast majority of Taser use by police in Scotland in the last year has been found to be necessary, proportionate and justified. Its annual report also found in a third of the times when tasers were used in the year to March 2019, it involved people threatening to harm themselves.

    Carriage vest manufacturer...

    Can somebody please tell me the manufacturer/Seller of the carriage vest used by GMP firearms officers and taser officers. The taser carriage supplied to me isn’t ideal but I have spoken to people who say this vest is comfortable and obviously able to carry a taser with the correct equipment. I have pictures but can’t work out how to get them on here! Haha. Thanks in advance for any help.

    New Taser X2

    Hi All, Im sure most of you are aware that the home office has approved the roll out of the new Taser X2 model which allows for two shots. Ive been looking at Taser international's website (makers of the taser) to learn a bit about the x2, the taser is black in colour on their website and promo video. Does anyone know: When issued to officers here, will the taser be black in colour or will they have it cased in yellow? Just curious to know?

  9. Policing Minister says officers will have best and most appropriate technology. Police forces have been given approval to use a new taser model rather than the existing obsolete devices.

He said: “This government is committed to giving the police the tools they need to do their job effectively, and where modern specialist equipment like CEDs [conductive energy devices] are used, to ensure our officers have access to the best and

  19. Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-34511532 I find it more disturbing that there are "experts" making the huge leap from looking at contextless figures to these kinds of conclusions seemingly without basis. For these conclusions to have any basis, there has to be an assumption that officers who have been very carefully selected and trained are actively going out on patrol looking for individuals to taser based on nothing more than their race - the fact that each deployment is so heavily scrutinised seems to be lost when these experts make these brash statements... What should be worrying

    stumbled across this taser deployment video earlier from Strood, recorded by a MOP who kindly gives his own commentary... seems like a good deployment from the officers involved!
