Alun Michael says police chiefs should make Taser decision

Whether Tasers are used by all front-line police officers should be a decision made by each force, a police and crime commissioner says.

Steve White, head of the Police Federation, said all front-line police in England and Wales should be offered Tasers in light of the increased terrorism threat.
