This area describes the considerations required when coming up with the decision to arrest and features the necessity for ongoing risk assessment at all phases of detention and custody.
Detention and custody
Reaction, arrest and detention
All staff whom encounter an event must make a instant danger assessment associated with the situation. Enough time available to try this varies according to the circumstances. The National Decision Model (NDM ) can be used to guide decision making by focusing on available information and intelligence, legal powers and the available options in all cases. Whenever answering an event, the chance assessment should begin with collecting information that is available cleverness while going to the scene. Information through the scene are available directly through the call operator that is handling the command and control incident report.
A pre-planned operation incorporates a step-by-step danger assessment and working strategy that addresses the potential risks associated with the suspect(s). See planning that is operational.
An individualized response is given in each situation, where feasible reasonable corrections should be built to accommodate needs that are individual. Dynamic vulnerability and risk assessments do not need to be recorded immediately. Information concerning the vulnerability for the individual during the true point of arrest (or detention under area 136 associated with Mental Health Act 1983) may, but, prove valuable for medical diagnoses and danger management. Where possible, officers should note this information and convey it to ambulance staff, health care experts (HCPs) and/or police custody staff without delay.
