Since the early 80s, many <a href="http://www.policeone.com/close-quarters-combat/articles/2044854-Policies-put-a-choke-hold-on-officer-safety/">department policies</a> have ended the use of neck restraints. <br>Should officers be trained in the application of (and defense against) neck restraints?
