The use of stun guns by police officers in England and Wales has more than doubled over two years.
But in West Yorkshire, the number of incidents has dropped.
West Midlands police were the most likely to use Tasers between July 2011 to December 2011 – almost three times a day.
Manchester was the second highest, twice a day on average, with West Yorkshire fourth.
But the Home Office figures released, show West Yorkshire Police is reducing the frequency of Taser discharges.
The device was fired 66 fewer times in 2012 compared to the same period the previous year, equating to a 35% decrease.
Similarly, the stun facility was also used in only three instances compared to nine in 2011.
Occasions where Taser was deployed as a warning measure is also down by 183, representing a 40% drop against 2011.
Nationally, the use of Tasers rose from a combined 3,128 deployments in 2009 to 6,649 in 2010 and 7,877 in 2011.
West Yorkshire Police Asst Chief Constable Mark Milsom (inset) said: “Having been one of 10 Forces to trial the use of Taser by non-firearms officers in 2007, we have developed our practices and procedures to a high standard.
“Senior officers review the circumstances following every use of Taser to identify any issues or lessons.”
