Yes. But they rarely use their weapons and most reach retirement without having drawn their weapon on duty, let alone fired it outside the shooting range.

I think the statistic was for the shooting in San Bernardino, the police there fired more shots in that one incident that the whole German police force in a year. The last figure I can find is 85 shots for the whole year, 49 of which were warning shots, 15 criminals injured and 6 killed.
