Ind. Officers Could Get Dementia Training

January 29, 2013  | 

Indiana police officers would get more information on handling Hoosiers suffering with dementia if a bill passed by the Indiana House on Tuesday becomes law.

House Bill 1044, which now moves to the state Senate, requires police officers to add information about Alzheimer's disease and dementia to their yearly training.

Rep. Bill Friend, R-Macy, authored the bill after an incident in his district in which an older man suffering with Alzheimer's disease had an episode during which he physically hit a few people and was tasered five times by a police officer.
