Matthew J. Planer, President of Police Innovations LLC, was well aware of the number of law enforcement officers who routinely experience unruly prisoners and expose themselves to injury and escape. He also considered agency liability (in transport and in the office) and recognized a tremendous need for safe, secure, temporary restraint. Media accounts of similar events motivated the concept along the way. Many months of refining several ideas resulted in the development of the Supplemental Prisoner Adjustable Restraint or SPAR . The unit, when mounted on a pedestal secured to floor and wall, takes little wall space to temporarily restrain prisoners safely, simply and securely, while waiting for processing, court, transport, etc. The patented unit is universal in design and will be available to fit inside larger transport vans to limit movement of prisoner passengers. The SPAR is very simple to use. It is intended to significantly reduce liability and prevent injury to officers.
