  • handcuffs

    what is No.1 tool in the unit? handcuffs? I think, we use handcuffs more frequently than any oother equipment, on the duty we apply handcuffs for inmates over 100 times, escort to shower, medications, court...,so we carry handcuffs at all times

    In our Seg unit, handcuffs would be #1 but elsewhere it's definitely the radio.

        I would have to say our radios. Do we use our cuffs more? Yes. During an emergency, would I want my radio or cuffs most? Radio.

          I probably do 300 handcuff applications a day, but only use my radio a few times daily.

          The radio is the #1 lifeline tool that I have, but for practical matters my cuffs are the most used piece of equipment.

            I try to use my brain more than my other tools, after that it is probably my radio and CCTV camera system.

                  Brain = always
                  Hardware = tie between cuffs and radio.


                  * please see my thread "Peerless" though in the Duty Gear section for information regarding those cuffs though.

                      First the brain. Then the radio. Cuffs only when needed.
                      It's a CERT thing. You wouldn't understand.

                        We rarely use our cuffs. In fact, the only time we put on cuffs in GP is to take them to the hole. We're not allowed to have cuff keys, so anytime we put them on, an L.T. has to come out to remove them. If an L.T. has to come out to take off cuffs, you'd better have a good reason for putting them on. Our no. 1 tool used would be a radio and/or pen.

                            Body Alarm would have to be right up there, Radio.
