Mark Andrews, Chairman of Wiltshire Police Federation, said: “Officers who volunteer and are authorised to carry firearms on behalf of society - and who bravely do so to protect the public - are highly trained and are some of the best colleagues we have.
“Our thoughts are with all involved in this incident in Swindon and we are offering our colleagues our full support at this time as they go through the Post Incident Process. We call upon the Independent Office for Police Conduct to bring their investigation to a prompt conclusion for the benefit of all concerned.
“It would inappropriate to comment further at this time due to the ongoing investigation.”
