Police Officers, how to assist with an arrest? If there is a Sergent arresting someone how do other officers assist with the arrest?
I need to know as I have to portray a police Officer Friday. One of the scenes is assisting a sergent in an arrest.If you are another police officer, than you assist as necessary (applying handcuffs, punching the guy who is burying his arms under his prone arms to prevent cuffing, or securing his legs to prevent kicking, or controlling the crowd/audience/unknown accomplices or supporters in the area.
If you are not a police officer, then stay the f out of the way, and be a good witness if called upon to be one.
Concur. However, the caveat being that the incidents and interactions that occur do not play out on nearly the frequent level the show indicates. It could take months or years (depending on the activity level of the station) to get all the things occurring that you see in a single "shift" episode of Southland.
