Number of times firearms officers were dispatched in West Yorkshire in 2019

We're waiting for Daniel Tomlinson to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please could you disclose the following information:

- How many times an Authorised Firearm Officer(s) (AFO) were dispatched in 2019 to incidents under the jurisdiction of West Yorkshire Police?
- Of these times, how many times were firearms "used" in the response? (The definition of "used" following ACPO Manual of Guidance on Police Use of Firearms section 2.19)
- Of these times where firearms were "used", how many were authorised from a Commanding officer to the AFO attending an incident?

- What categories of incidents were responded to by AFOs in 2019 and a percentage breakdown? (A rough breakdown would be sufficient, i.e AFOs were dispatched to Domestic incidents which represented 20% of all incidents attended to by AFOs in 2019)

- How many AFOs are actively employed by West Yorkshire Police?

I appreciate your co-operation in this request.

Yours faithfully,
Daniel Tomlinson
