Dear Home Office,

Could you please provide me with a URL to the quarterly statistics on TASER use by the UK police.

If these statistics are no-longer being published on any of the Home Office websites could you please release them in response to this FOI request.

I would like to suggest proactive publication of these statistics so that they are available at the time summaries of them are released to the press.

It appears the latest statistics on TASER use are still those for the period up to 30 September 2009.

We're waiting well over a year for the figures to be collated and released.

The response promises new figures by the end of 2010. There are just a couple of weeks left for that to happen.
