Restraining an individual is a risky, but often necessary process. When performed incorrectly, it can have devastating results. This course details some of these unfortunate results and how to avoid them. In this course, we are covering important issues that, collectively, deputies and police officers are having to face when confronted with situations involving bizarre, irrational, and sometimes life-threatening behavior from suspects. In particular, we will explore several aspects of these potentially dangerous response calls, including excited delirium and positional asphyxia, and the restraint techniques that might be applied in these situations.
