Taser footage of selected case studies

 

In the Ombudsman Report, How are Taser weapons used by the NSW Police Force? a number of case studies are discussed throughout. For 11 of the case studies, we have released the Taser Cam footage and/or CCTV footage which can be accessed using the links below. We have selected these case studies because they show either appropriate or inappropriate Taser use.

Each Case study is described in detail in the report, and we highly recommend that in viewing these files, you read the detailed Case study in the report.
