Prisoner Escape Danger
The Criminal Intelligence Unit of the Tallahassee Police Department has learned that during a recent prisoner transport, a Tallahassee Police patrol officer observed the prisoner moving about suspiciously in the back seat of the patrol vehicle while handcuffed. After his delivery to the jail, it appeared as though the seat belt had been tampered with. As a reminder, criminals have been sharing the information that a properly applied seat belt can break handcuff chains. Note the damage in the photos above from only a moderate effort.
The highest risk is when prisoners are handcuffed in front.
