(3) Apply the BodyCuff leg restraint system to a prisoner. Ensure that at least one other
Internment/Resettlement Specialist or Military Police (MP) officer is present when applying or removing the
BodyCuff leg restraint.
(a) First you must apply the BodyCuff as previously described.
(b) Have one Internment/Resettlement Specialist hold the carry handle to steady the prisoner.
(c) Apply the cuff of the leg restraint to the strap of the main buckle.
(d) Double lock the cuff. Check the double lock by squeezing the cuff.
(e) Direct the prisoner to bend his leg at the knee and place the leg restraint around his ankle and
tighten it, being careful not to cut off circulation. Double-lock the VRM using the tip of the hand iron key.
(f) Maintain a firm grip on the leg restraint while applying it. Direct the prisoner to place his
foot back on the ground.
Remember, the army correctional system's mission is accomplished by maintaining prisoners in custody and
under control. Facility personnel achieve and maintain custody and control of prisoners by employing the
custody measures outlined in this lesson. Maintaining custody and control is the function of every confinement
or correctional facility and its staff.
