NOMS publishes guidance on Physical Control in Care

The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) has updated the Physical Control in Care (PCC) manual, which is an instructors manual for use within secure training centres and some other custodial settings. The 2010 manual is split into two distinct training guides. The first is the PCC manual, which includes guidance on holds, spotaneous incidents and handcuffs. Separately, the personal protection manual contains guidance on breakaway techniques and managing weapon attacks. The decision to divide the manual was taken to emphasise the difference between techniques used to safely restrain an individual and those used to separate staff from a potentially volatile and dangerous situation. Both manuals have been designed to be used as part of an intensive training course and under no circumstances should any holds or techniques be used without professional supervision.
