Analysis and Recommendations for a Québec Police Practice on the Use of Conducted Energy Devices

Québec counts 14 000 policemen to cover its territory: 160 "TASER" are numbered and were used in 81 events in 2006, among which 51 by municipal policemen and 30 by aboriginal policemen.

"TASER" guns are generally available among special intervention units, tactics intervention groups, patrol superintendents or policemen responsible for police detention. These users already benefit from a specific training. As for the aboriginal police forces, several of their patrollers have the "TASER" gun, considering the particular context of their work. Policemen making use of this device received training.
