Emergency Response Belts (1992_17)


Can you please tell me if your police force uses Emergency Response Belts (ERB) on detainees.


If so, can you tell me how they are used and whether or not any guidelines around their usage have changed since the death of Thomas Orchard in police custody at Exeter police station in October 2012.


If they are no longer used, can you tell me when they were discontinued and why.


West Midlands Police does not use Emergency response Belts (ERB) on detainees and therefore there is no information held.
