Control and Restraint Training with Private Prisons
Caring for prisoners and keeping them secure can be one of the most challenging job roles. Due to the nature of the job and the people they care for, it is reasonable to suspect that Prison Officers will have to manage violent and dangerous incidents at some point in their career. For some this can be a regular occurrence, particularly when managing prisoners who often display challenging and violent behaviour.
The level of training required to reduce the risk of injury when managing prisoners is extensive, particularly when discussing personal safety, restraint or physical intervention. Control and Restraint is an important tool for Officers in a prison environment where the chances of prisoners becoming violent are higher than they might be outside of the establishment. When an incident involves more than one prisoner, for instance two or more prisoners are fighting, the use of Control and Restraint techniques are the fastest and safest method to bring them under control, minimising the risk to staff and prisoners alike.
Our ‘prison specific’ Control and Restraint training is run over 4 days and includes conflict management, breakaway, non-restrictive techniques, restrictive techniques and handcuff training and is suitable for all ages of prisoner. Full specification is available on request.
At COVIC Training Solutions we understand the personal protection and restraint training requirements of Prison Officers because Training Director Colin Vowles served as a Prison Officer in an HM Prison Service establishment in Kent for a number of years.
