Hertfordshire Police also plan to increase the number of officers who are trained to use Taser in Hertfordshire Constabulary from 125 currently to 160.
Hertfordshire Police statement: “The purpose of this increase is to manage this resource consistently across the whole force area.
“The majority of officers who will receive the specialist Taser training will be from teams that respond to 999 calls and emergencies.
“All officers who use Taser are trained to national standards and follow strict guidance around their use. The devices are only used in violent situations or where there is an immediate threat of violence to members of the public or police.”
