Annotation: FILM EXAMINES VARIOUS METHODS OF HANDCUFFING A SUSPECT TO ENSURE THAT HE DOES NOT ESCAPE OR CAUSE INJURY TO THE ARRESTING OFFICER.
Abstract: COMMON SENSE AND PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT ARE THE RULE OF THUMB IN HANDLING A SUSPECT TO BE HANDCUFFED. ALWAYS SEARCH THE BACK OF THE SUSPECT BEFORE HANDCUFFING HIM TO CHECK FOR WEAPONS HE COULD REACH. THERE ARE FOUR BASIC POSITIONS IN WHICH TO HOLD A SUSPECT WHILE HANDCUFFING HIM. THESE INCLUDE THE WALL SEARCH POSITION WHERE THE SUSPECT LEANS FORWARD AGAINST A WALL WITH HIS LEGS SPREAD AND HIS HANDS BEHIND HIS BACK; THE STANDING POSITION IN WHICH THE SUSPECT'S HANDS ARE LOCKED BEHIND HEAD; THE KNEELING POSITION IN WHICH THE SUSPECT IS ORDERED TO KNEEL WITH HIS LEGS CROSSED AT THE ANKLES AND HIS HAND BEHIND HIS HEAD; AND THE COMBAT TAKEDOWN. NEVER HANDCUFF A SUSPECT TO A FIXED OBJECT, THE FILM POINTS OUT. ALSO, NEVER ALLOW THE SUSPECT TO WALK BEHIND THE ARRESTING OFFICER, OR CUFF THE SUSPECT TO THE OFFICER....BS
