Report says police in Lichfield and Burntwood are using tasers appropriately

An independent report has said tasers are being used appropriately by police in Lichfield and Burntwood.

The Safer Neighbourhood Panel rated the use as ‘good’ after examining records and footage from body-worn officer cameras.

Staffordshire Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis said: “The report demonstrates the importance of Safer Neighbourhood Panels and my aim continues to be to make policing in Staffordshire the most open and transparent in the country.

“Public confidence in policing is a priority and this extra layer of scrutiny from Safer Neighbourhood Panels ensures transparency at the most local level.”
