IAP publish report of the cross sector restraint workshop

The IAP have today published their report of the cross sector restraint workshop, which was held in May 2010.  The workshop brought together training leads on restraint from each of the custody sectors in order to identify common approaches to restraint. To provide some context around the issue of restraint, the first half of the report provides statistics on the number of restraint related deaths within state custody since 1999 and an overview of each custodial sector’s policy and guidance on the use of restraint. The second half of the report provides a summary of the key discussions from the day along with the resulting recommendations, which the IAP hope will lead to safer approaches to the use of restraint. In terms of next steps, the IAP will be working with the co-sponsors of the Ministerial Council to consider the recommendations made in more detail.
