Another Scilly Police Officer Taser Trained

police landrover backWe may have one of the lowest crime rates in Britain, but Scilly’s police chief says on-going Taser training is important, as his team, “need to be ready for any eventuality.”

PC Faye Webb has undergone specialist instruction in Plymouth this week. PC Mat Collier is already trained in Taser use.

A Taser has never been deployed in Scilly but Mat and PC Mark Blyth drew their weapons in May 2011 in order to apprehend a disorderly contract worker.

Colin says just the warning of the deployment of the weapon can be effective, as it “puts a lump in someone’s throat.”
