Prone Standing Armlock
c) Control Advantages
The standing armlock is the easiest, strongest, and safest technique to use on any grounded arrestee (supine or prone) and leads directly into the prone handcuffing position.
As a known initial go-to position for a grounded arrestee, the officer can be confident of the steps leading to handcuffing (standardized and solid handcuffing techniques) while the arrestee in under effective control.
This technique (and the prone handcuffing position) allows for a heads-up positioning that also allows for a quick disengagement if needed.
