ADVANCED LAW ENFORCEMENT RESUSCITATION WORKSHOP

The advanced law enforcement emergency cardiac response workshop is an innovative training program for sworn peace officers which interweaves didactic and tactile learning phases with reality-based training scenarios designed to enhance officers’ lifesaving skills under stress. The course provides up-to-date science and research to ensure law enforcement is provided the highest quality cardiac emergency resuscitation training available for incorporation in the field.

Police officers respond to rapid unknown field conditions in which they must not only react but thrive in life and death situations. Law enforcement frequently increases skill set through programs such as “force-on-force” training, stress inoculation, crisis intervention and role-playing scenarios. This innovative course provides realistic field conditions custom-created for law enforcement officers to increase out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival and improve neurological outcomes of patients. The “force-on-force” methodology of training is taken and applied to law enforcement emergency cardiac response.

This course uses evaluators and volunteer actors along with real-time feedback manikins to evaluate officer compression quality during field-based scenarios. Officers will go through didactic training and a tactile skill-building phase with instructors prior to beginning the reality-based training scenarios. The scenarios are all based on actual cardiac arrest events police officers and the instructors have responded to. Reality-based training is a dynamic process of training that allows us to emulate realistic field conditions and simulated stress to best prepare students for real-life incidents. Reality-based training allows students to gain confidence in their skills in a safe environment so they can provide better life-saving care when the time comes. This course provides law enforcement with a blueprint to draw from when they next respond to a cardiac emergency.
