Escort To Transportation

c) Control Advantages

The rear, escort-twistlock controls the seized arm at arm’s length while unbalancing him and it pushes his hips in the direction of the escort in an unimpeded manner (avoids walking on each other’s feet).

PRO TIP: The hand on the shoulder offers further ability of balance displacement (if pulled backwards slightly) while guiding him in the escort; it also checks him from unwanted upper body movements like headbutting you.

Twistlocks can be used to sit arrestees down and hold them there to wait for transportation.

Monitoring a prisoner’s movements is an important tactical consideration; you are responsible for your arrestee (some will attempt very stupid and desperate actions to avoid being jailed, or reason to sue you).
