Being in possession and the use of handcuffs, providing their intended use is for lawful purposes, handcuffs are not an offensive weapon nor are they prohibited in any way. Many areas of the UK encourage the lawful use of handcuffs sanctioned by local police forces; in some cases training is also provided by the local law enforcement teams.Handcuffing is regarded as a preferable restraint as opposed to group restraint tactics which can pose a threat to the welfare of the person being restrained particularly positional asphyxia. When applying handcuffs the subject should be sitting back on their feet and the restraints should be applied within 30 seconds, the suspect should only be placed in the recovery position as a last resort. as you can appreciate if you are conducting the role of a security guard or door supervisor you would be gaining an increased advantage of benefiting your potential employers than those that do not have this qualification, especially in the no win no fee culture we are living in today, accusations of excessive force and litigation of vicarious liability are drastically reduced.
