Exact figures for the number of Taser trained officers on London Boroughs in July 2014 are not available. From information supplied on 10.09.2014, the confirmed figure for Taser trained officers (known as Specially Trained Units (STU)) on London Borough's was 1046.

Please be aware that the number of Taser trained officers fluctuates due to staff movements, qualification and re-qualification of officers.
