Police to roll out tasers to officers across qld as part of crackdown on shootings
Officers in Brisbane have been advised to roll out tasers as part of the nationwide crisis.
Chief Insp Paul McLean said tasers could help to reduce viol포커 족보ent crime.
“This has been one of the most dangerous times for many people since the murder of Ms Corrigan,” he said.
“I am advised that with Tasers on our streets, police officers will be able to help increase public confidence and encourage a reduction in gun crime.”
Mr McLean urged officers to work with community support groups including community groups, community health units and local schools.
“They have to be part of the solution,” he said.
The Queensland Police Association chief Peter Fitzpatrick sa강릉출장샵 강릉출장마사지id he believed officers should follow police department policy by deploying tasers only in self-defence.
“I think the officers don’t need to give their lives for it.”
Community and police organisations are also urging the public to turn to community outlets for help dealing with violence and to attend public vigils and rallies.
Police said those wanting to attend community vigils may attend The Community Justice Centre.
The Community Justice Centre’s hotline 1-866-942-5227 is also available to those in need.
The event is free and open to the public.
“Everyone needs to share stories of violence they have faced and what it is like to live with that violence,” he said.
“I would urge the media to reach out to all community organisations to share what is going on with them, the community, the police as a whole as we work together to create a safer Queensland.”
