Please provide information on how much MOPAC has bid for under the National Taser Fund and approximately how many tasers this will fund should they receive the full bid?

The Home Office fund of £10m limited expenditure to taser devices and warranties only, with an expectation that individual forces would fund equipping the additional devices for service e.g. consumables and training. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has therefore bid for £1.9m.

It is not possible to confirm the number of tasers this will fund, as this will depend on the type of tasers purchased – X2 or T7. The T7 (new device) has not yet been included on the Home Office national framework.
