Taser Usage

The request was successful.

Dear Surrey Police,

How many times have tasers been used in 2012 and 2013? Can I have seperate figures for each year? Can I also see how many times tasers were used on people under the age of 18? Also, how many times were tasers used on animals and what animals were they?

Yours faithfully,

Joe Lo

Dear Surrey Police

Can I remind you about my FOI request on taser usage. It has now been more than 20 days.

Yours sincerely,

Joe Lo

!Freedom of Information,

Dear Joe Lo
 
[1][FOI #189143 email]
 

I write in connection with your request for information received on 12
December 2013 concerning Taser usage.

 

The FOI Act requires public authorities to comply with all requests
promptly and within 20 working days, however, whilst every effort is made
to comply with this requirement, on occasions it is necessary to exceed
the 20 day time limit to ensure that all relevant information is included
within the reply.

 

I am writing today to advise you that we are still processing your request
and I would expect to be able to send a final response within two weeks
but will keep you updated if that is not the case.

 

I apologise for any inconvenience this delay may cause you.

 

Regards
Fiona
