The Norwegian government has decided that the police will be equipped with electroshock weapons, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.

Since 2019, the police tactical unit of the Norwegian Police Service, the police’s elite task force, has been equipped with electroshock weapons, and four police districts have participated in an electroshock weapon pilot project.

Now, electroshock weapons are being introduced permanently, according to NRK.
