Hello folks, I am a criminal justice student at APSU in Clarksville, TN. I am also a NREMT-B. I am working on a research paper covering the need for law enforcement personnel to be MFR qualified for their own safety and the safety of others. I need statitics, links, info on how your deparments approach this, or your own personal opinions. JIMHO- I think Police Officers should have medical cross training beyond first aid because from my expieriance they reach the scene before we (EMTs) do most of the time. And in the "golden hour" every precious minute counts. No matter if it is the life or limb of a suspect, an abuse victim or a down officer.
