Handcuff Removal

c) Control Advantages

Let the detainee know that you are still in control through your professional handling of him.

An assault, when handcuffs are removed, is more likely to occur in a custodial setting than on the street because the arrestee knows that he is not going to be released; therefore, he may be more inclined to exact revenge or otherwise unleash his anger onto you or a jail guard.

PRO TIP: A swung open handcuff can cause serious damage, so closing it gives you a better handle while reducing its destructive potential if swung at you.
