In November 2017 an Armed Offenders Squad course instructor used a Taser against eight course participants on the firing range.
When the participants failed to hit the required number of targets with their firearms, the course instructor used the Taser by way of a stun contact to their backsides.
Police conducted a criminal investigation and were unable to obtain sufficient evidence for a criminal prosecution. Police also conducted an employment investigation, which the Authority reviewed.
The officer was sanctioned as the result of the employment investigation. The Authority agreed with this outcome.
