Currently the Taser Return Form (F6624) has no mandatory requirement to provide specific details in relation to the exact location where Taser was deployed, other than the postcode, police borough where incident took place and/or the street name if postcode is unknown. 

The Taser Return Form (F6624) is an ACPO nationally accredited document and cannot be altered without ratification from the Home Office.
