"The intent of this review is to provide a multi disciplinary report evaluating police use of neck restraint, with specific attention to vascular neck restraint. The report began with extensive expert medical review of the body of medical evidence and case law surrounding application of neck restraint. The neck restraint was evaluated with focus directed to the various types of neck restraints, the risk of injury from application of the restraint, medical implications and any collateral issues pertaining to case law and training. Recommendations for future evaluations were also generated."--Foreword.
