A B.C. legislative committee is preparing its final report on police stun gun use in the province.

The all-party committee is examining the status of recommendations stemming from the high-profile Braidwood Inquiry following the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver's airport in 2007.

This fall, the committee heard presentations from 15 expert witnesses including Thomas Braidwood, who issued the recommendations three years ago.

The public comment period on the recommendations has now ended, and committee chair Murray Coell says they're working on the final report.

"It will consist of our review of how Justice Braidwood's recommendations have been implemented by government, and how well the police complaints process works," he said.

"It's a lot of work to do in a short time, but it's an all-party committee, and I think working very well."

Coell says Braidwood told the committee he was pleased all of his recommendations had been addressed by government in some way.

Coell expects the report to be tabled in February.
