New System of Managing Physical Restraint in Youth Custody 

Chief Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick has published a report on the implementation of the new system of behaviour management and restraint in young offender institutions (YOIs) and secure training centres (STCs).

The introduction of the new system, known as ‘minimising and managing physical restraint’ (MMPR), is the culmination of a long process initiated following the deaths of two boys in 2004. Gareth Myatt died after he became unconscious during a restraint in an STC. Adam Rickwood hung himself after a ‘pain compliance’ technique was applied to him.
