Arm all UK Officers with Tasers

This petition had 8 supporters

A lack of proper defence for UK officers has always been seen as an issue by many people and has recently been brought into the light by many UK citizens and the rest of the World with the recent terror attack at London. 

I am aware that the UK Police do have a Armed Response unit in almost every County across England, but how many non Firearms Officers carry a taser? It may be surprising to hear but most Officers in the UK do not even carry a taser and instead can only defend with a Baton or CS Spray. With the current threat of attacks on Britain this is something that needs to discussed in more detail by our Government.

A survey in December 2016 told us 89% of people asked said that they agree 'forces should be allowed to train and equip officers if the use of Taser is automatically recorded by Body Worn Video'. 

If it can be monitored and has the peoples approval, why are we leaving it to chance? Sign now to help defend the British Officers who will give their life for others
