"Tactical Communications" as a Type of Use of Force

Richard Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridgeshire Constabulary

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

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.
