Good Idea Robert.
If the subject is cooperative, that might be a good move. Most of the time, the ones I dealt with that are cooperative would allow you to cuff them while seated. However, it is easier to cuff behind back with them standing.

Valid points. I don't like cuffing anyone while they are seated because I don't have control of them, nor their environment. If they warrant custodial arrest, or even a detention, I want to be able to see the entire 360 deg. around them before approaching. it reduces the chances of them having a weapon right under a thigh or something like that. And even the most cooperative subject may think twice once the cuffs start getting slapped on. Just an opinion.

And I agree with this idea of a law enforcement only blog - we can all learn from each other with the same mindset.

Good Idea here. We have been modifing out cuffing and Suspicious persons contact proceedures. If you don't mind I will be stealing this.

Check out it's setup where only verified LEO's can pass on intel. I'm not sure how LawOfficer does the check or if they do, so let's make sure we don't give purps any good ideas. I know the think COPS shows it all, but that's a good show to see what not to do.

Just started year 20. I've done a lot in my time but working the street is the most fun I've had. No case load, no disrupted family plans, no dirty CI's to work just working at my own time line and chasing cars like a young pup. I still can't believe I get paid to play cops and robbers.

There are houses here that no matter who lives in them we end up visiting. Is that a phenomenon elsewhere or are we just lucky?
