Handcuffing policy

Daniel Elliott made this Freedom of Information request to Dyfed Powys Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Dyfed Powys Police should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Dyfed Powys Police,

I understand that there is Home Office Approved Training for the application of handcuffs on suspects/detainees, however, there seems to be a lack of information regarding what type of suspect/detainee should have which of the approved application methods applied.

I have found information that rear handcuffing in the stack position should be applied to slimmer people and larger suspects should have either back to back (of hand) or if impractical, to have 2 sets of handcuffs connected together.

It is clear that some people are too large to have rear stack at all or are large enough not to be able to have rear stack without causing considerable pain, discomfort and injury, yet I have found evidence of some people who clearly shouldn't have been handcuffed in the rear stack position being handcuffed in the aforementioned position.

What is your force policy on handcuffing large people who struggle to or cannot practically position their hands/arms for a rear stack and what are officers taught in regards to handcuffing in the rear stack position?

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Elliott

Dear FOI,

I would prefer the information requested over an internal review, but with the amount of time I have waited for the information, I find myself wondering if I will be waiting similar time scales for a review.

However, yes, I would like an internal review, as I don't think my request should have taken this long to complete, even if you have been busy with lots of requests.

Yours sincerely,
