Firing Net Officer Practice

People can also be restrained with a net, particularly if they are irrationally violent due to mental instability, drug influence or just drunk.
A person suddenly enveloped in a net usually stops moving in stunned astonishment for a few seconds. Following this a deranged captive will often thrash about, becoming more entangled, or if rational will begin to untangle his or herself. It is during this short period of entanglement that police personnel have the opportunity to physically overpower the captive.
Human net capture can be by hand held or vehicle mounted units. Enquiries from law enforcement organisations are always welcome.
