Non-combative Handcuffing:

Handcuffs are among the most often used tool by security officers working in retail loss prevention.  Detaining a suspect for shoplifting could occur at any time, and yet the training to use them properly is severely lacking.

Studies show that over 67% of resistance by subjects occurs after the first handcuff has been applied.

All too often the result is injury and/or death to either the officer or subject. Additionally, the improper use of handcuffs is the focus of many civil suits.  Proper training in the use of handcuffs is vital to officers.

The most important part of law enforcement is officer safety and the most important part of officer safety is consistent and proper training! From the very beginnings of policing through the complexities of our modern times, training has been an integral part of law enforcement. The old adage of "how we train is how we will react" is true. The proper application of handcuffs is more than just getting the equipment on a subject; you must also consider the bio-mechanical limits of the offender and the rules that govern the use of force. Therefore, it is very important that you begin REACTIVE HANDCUFFING TACTICS training by reading carefully the CAUTIONS and USE OF FORCE sections of this book. These two sections will guide you in your training and in the safe application of handcuffs.

Applying handcuffs to any subject can be dangerous. You never know when a seemingly compliant subject will suddenly turn resistant or even combative. Included in this book is a section title THE ATTITUDE OF CONFRONTATION which will give you some insight into how body language can tip you off to a subject's intentions. Being able to read a person?s body language will help you in any situation in which you are dealing one on one with another individual.

For a device as simple as a pair of handcuffs, a surprising number of people who are expected to be trained in their use have not received adequate instruction. Even among law enforcement officers, cases of handcuff misuse are common.

Sometimes, they lead to injury for the subjects that are being restrained; sometimes, they lead the subjects with too much freedom of motion, putting the arresting individual in jeopardy in case the subject offers resistance.

This class begins with the fundamental techniques for handcuffing a non-resistant subject; probably the most common type of arrest and restraint. But at any stage of the cuffing procedure, a subject may choose to resist or even attempt to attack you. There are several specific examples of when and how a subject may choose to resist or attack and detailed instructions about how you can quickly and effectively defeat subject resistance without the use of excessive force which would endanger you and the subject, and increase your potential legal liability.
