The Australian Police have been using Tasers for a similar amount of time as the UK. I expect they have the same problems & criticism as everywhere else in the world.

The linked article on the Perth Now website, shows a short vieo from Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan to his troops in Western Australia advising against misuse of Tasers but importantly, offering his full support for officers who use them in  good faith to defend themselves or others.

Does anyone have any examples of a UK chief showing support for his or her officers?
