Responding to the increased use of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to access websites, we have implemented a new responsive website design. This new design allows our website to display properly regardless of the device used. While implementing this change, we checked our website against a range of government and technical standards (W3C, WCAG), to ensure that our site continued to meet accessibility standards and Internet best practice.Learn more

This is the second comprehensive investigation that my office has undertaken into the use of Taser weapons by the New South Wales Police Force (NSWPF). The first investigation was done at a time when Tasers were only used by police officers within specialist units of the NSWPF. Since that report in 2008, Taser weapons have been rolled out for use by all accredited general duties police officers in NSW.
