Pasco Police Officers have a duty to render aid upon a subject after a use of force upon that person. PPD Officers are trained in first aid/CPR, AED, carry tourniquets, and Narcan.
Use of Force Policy
Whenever an officer applies a Use of Force option upon a subject that results in a visible injury or complaint of injury, an officer will monitor the subject and summon aid or transport for medical attention. Once the scene is safe, officers will render first aid to subjects who have been seriously injured as a result of police actions.
