Summary: Instructional film on riot control techniques for the armed forces when assisting the civil powers.
Description: Intended to emphasise the necessity for following regulations governing conduct during a civil disturbance. These are designed to ensure that only minimum force should be used, and only a case of absolute necessity. Any officer or NCO involved is liable to a harassing cross-examination and must therefore be in a position to reply to any point raised. The film then moves through the correct procedures and formations for each stage of a developing riot, from fire warning through opening fire, searching suspects and withdrawal.
