NZ police response to IPCA report

Police acknowledges the Independent Police Conduct Authority’s report into an incident in Picton last year in which it found the second deployment of a Taser unjustified.

Officers A and B were on patrol where they came across a man and four associates causing a disturbance at a house party around midnight on June 22, 2018.

One man in particular began acting in what the officers deemed to be an assaultive manner, and Officer A deployed a Taser.

As a result, the man was on his back, but still acting in what Officer A believed to be an assaultive manner.
