"Tactical Communications" as a Type of Use of Force

The request was successful.

Dear Cambridgeshire Constabulary,

Cambridgeshire Police's published "Use of Force" statistics:


list "Tactical Communications" as a type of use of force.

Could you please release the definition of "Tactical Communications" in this context.

I expect there may be a formal definition and/or there may be guidance to officers and staff on what should be recorded under this category.
