PCA supports the use of tasers

The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) is supporting the decision of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS)on the introduction and implementation of non-lethal weapons, particularly tasers.

The PCA explains that currently, police officers only have their firearms to defend themselves. Therefore, the implementation of the tasers in in TTPS  serves to fill an operational gap once the necessary policies and regulations adhered to in order to protect against excessive force. The PCA believes that the use of tasers will improve accountability in the conduct of police operations.
