Article From
POLICE MAGAZINE 2019
https://www.policemag.com/524139/how...ional-asphyxia
"When you take someone into custody, be careful about how you position them. Certain restrained positions can restrict breathing and lead to the tragedy of in-custody death.
.....
...In order to ensure the safety and to minimize the risk of positional asphyxia resulting in an in-custody death, law enforcement officers should learn to recognize contributing factors and conditions that contribute to positional asphyxia.

1. When feasible, officers should avoid the use of prone restraint techniques.
2. Learn and follow department guidelines and policy for situations involving physical restraint of individuals.
3. Once the suspect is handcuffed, get them off the face-down position.
4. Inquire about the recent use of drugs or if the subject has a cardiac condition or any respiratory conditions or diseases.
5. Have someone monitor the subject.
6. Obtain medical evaluation and treatment if needed.
7. Pass on any information about drug or alcohol use and medical conditions to the personnel at the detention facility where the subject will be incarcerated.
In-custody death is one of the great tragedies in law enforcement and one of the most common causes is positional asphyxia. To reduce the risk of positional asphyxia, the use of maximal face-down position restraint techniques should be avoided. If it is necessary to position a person face-down under restraint, then the subject must be closely and continuously monitored. By doing so and following procedures discussed in this article, the potential for in-custody deaths from positional asphyxia can be lessened. "

....Ten years ago, a police officer drove his knee into the back of a 28-year-old man already in handcuffs during a confrontation at a Minneapolis YMCA. The man, David Smith, died and the Minneapolis Police Department paid his family $3 million.
As part of the 2013 settlement, the department agreed to include additional training on how to avoid positional asphyxiation, which is the inability to breathe and death as a result of body position. But in the wake of the death of George Floyd, Smith’s family is investigating whether the department ever implemented it properly....
