Chokeholds & Strangleholds

The division does not authorize the use of neck restraints except as provided for in sections 3-6-2 Response to Resistance/Aggression (RRA) in Defense of Human Life and 3-6-3 Use of Deadly Force to Apprehend a Fleeing Felon. The bottom line is, an officer would only use this as a technique of opportunity in a deadly force situation.
