10 Movement Inside the Facility When escorting an inmate within the facility, officer must remain alert at all times. The officer should always keep the inmate away from the officers dominant side. Different facilities have different policies and procedures for escorting inmates within the facility. When taking an inmate from a cell, never enter the cell with a weapon of any kind on your person.

11 Movement Inside the Facility In opening a cell door, stand in front of the door with your foot against the bottom of the door and open it only wide enough for the inmate to pass through. In some instances, the inmates are required to undress and pass out their clothes for examination prior to coming out. After searching the clothing, the inmate should dress in your presence.

12 Transporting to Court The number of officers used in transporting an inmate(s) to court may vary depending on the number of inmates. Make sure the movement order is signed by the proper authority. The transport officer will search the inmate(s) and apply restraints. The transporting vehicle should be searched thoroughly for contraband before placing inmates in it.

13 Transporting to Court Identify the inmate(s) to assure transport of the correct inmate(s). Upon arrival at the courthouse, secure the inmate in local lockup. Secure your sidearm before entering the lockup to remove the restraining devices from the inmate. Make a survey of the courtroom considering all avenues of escape.

14 Transporting to Court Before leaving the courtroom, handcuff the inmate and return to the lockup where you can apply the remainder of the restraining devices. Upon conclusion of the trial, prepare the inmate for transportation back to the facility.

15 Obtain the proper authorization for the inmate to be transferred. The authorization will contain the inmate's name, number, purpose of movement and sentence, necessary files, and special orders that are to accompany him such as his records (institution and medical. ) After delivering the inmate to his destination, obtain a receipt from the receiving institution. Transporting to Prison

16 Transporting to Hospital Make sure you have inmates medical records and appointment slip. If the inmate must use an elevator, use the patients elevator. Be alert – waiting rooms are crowded, seating space is limited, conditions are ideal for an attempted escape or for creating a disturbance that could lead to an escape. H/13.jpg

17 Transporting to Funeral Home Determine the allotted time an inmate has to visit with the family. Limit the visit to private family visit time. Never let the inmate out of your sight. Do not accept any personal items for the inmate. Do not accept any food or drink from anyone. Always keep safety and security in mind for you, the inmate, and the general public.

18 General Precautions Outside the Facility

19 General Transporting Precautions 1.During the transport, secure all potential avenues of escape or remain with and observe inmate at all times. 2.Remind inmate of institution's rules and regulations as they relate to inmate movement procedures. 3.Conduct a clothed body search of the inmate prior to leaving the facility. 4.Inspect and search the transport vehicle.

20 General Transporting Precautions 5.You should sign paperwork which states the legal authority for transporting the inmate. 6.As soon as you accept custody of an inmate, the safety, security, and welfare of that person is your responsibility. If an inmate is injured or ill and in your opinion should not be transported, do not accept him. 7.Do not feel that you can ignore the rules or procedure for properly handling inmates, because a detention officer or admissions officer is annoyed or inconvenienced by your refusal to accept an inmate.

21 General Transporting Precautions 8.You should identify yourself to the inmate before the transport. 9.The inmate should be thoroughly searched prior to removal to or from any place of confinement. 10.All of the inmates personal property should be packaged with proper identification. 11.The inmate should be restrained in accordance with procedure outlined previously.

22 General Transporting Precautions 12.Compare/inspect photograph to ensure the identity of inmate for transport or release. 13.Prior to the commencement of the trip, obtain and evaluate the available background information relative to your inmate. 14.As you prepare for the movement of an inmate, it is particularly helpful to obtain a photograph of the person or persons you will move.

23 General Transporting Precautions 15.Should you have the misfortune of an escape, it is very difficult to describe your escapee if you guess at his height, weight, etc. A photograph and description can be immediately made available to local authorities. 16.The special conditions and potential hazards which surround the movement of inmates necessitate exact planning as well as a high degree of alertness by the transporting officers. 17.Contact with the general public should be held to a minimum. 18.A female officer should accompany a female inmate.

24 Restraining Devices Handcuffs Leg restraints Waist chains

25 Reactionary Positioning Zones

26 Leg restraints should be used on all inmates in transit. Officers should always make sure the inmate is properly handcuffed and wearing a waist chain. The use of leg restraints does not, in itself, stop an inmate from running; they merely slow him down. The removal of leg restraints en route should only be done when absolutely necessary. Leg restraints should be placed over the socks and then closed up snug, leaving room for circulation. Leg Restraints

27 A waist chain or belly chain consists of a large brass or steel shaped "D- ring" attached to a length of chain. The inmates hands are in front, making it more comfortable for him. Chains are used as restraining devices only in conjunction with handcuffs. Waist Chains
