Yes.
Did you buy your second pair? Or got them issued.

Yes - I've actually got 4 sets (carry 2)

 

One set are the Hiatts/TCH folding cuffs, issued when I got my PSU gear through (less things for people to grab at was the theory) - carry these on my belt

One set of my original Hiatts Rigid cuffs on my vest

2 sets of TCH normal cuffs, one set was ordered by accident and lives in my locker, another set travels to and from work with me in my bag.

 

No limits here it seems!

Asked for them and received them. Doubt anyone keeps a record of how many you are issued.

Everything has changed since a thread i had previously read from 2012, officers were not very happy about carrying 2. But now that this has changed i think officers are a lot safer. Being able to cuff 2 people.

My old force stopped issuing spears a long time ago
Guess if you have more than three to detain you cuff two and impale the rest?

I guess that explains the constant mention of spear in the OST these days

No, I work in Scotland and generally we are double crewed thus we only have one. I know of cops that carry two. They are few and far between and generally work in specialist units like dog section, firearms, public order.
