To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the length of time is for firearms training for Authorised Firearms Officers in each police force in the UK.
Answer (Mr Nick Hurd)
Officers must undertake the National Police Firearms Training Curriculum – a programme of nationally accredited training for armed officers. However, the length of armed officer training is an operational matter for individual chief officers. The length of courses also varies according to the duties likely to be undertaken.
