Dear PoliceOne Member,

Earlier this year, we presented a feature on the work done by Dr. Bill Lewinski and the team at Force Science Institute on the dangers posed by prone subjects. Today we revisit that matter, with a handful of items — one from Columnist Dan Marcou, one from yours truly, as well as the summary findings from FSI. Remember, hands hidden under a proned-out subject are a warning sign of potential, if not probable, non-compliance.
