Indianapolis Officers Issued Trauma Kits

March 13, 2014  | 

Soon every Indianapolis Metro Police officer will have tools the department says could save lives, including those of other police officers.

On Tuesday, public safety officials including Director of Public Safety Troy Riggs, Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry and the Fraternal Order of Police will announce that enough money was raised so each of the 1,500 IMPD officers can have their own trauma kit, WISH TV reports.

The kits include trauma scissors, a tourniquet, bandages and airways that an officer could use on oneself, another officer or another victim. In emergencies, the FOP officials say minutes can save a life. These kits, they say, can immediately stop bleeding in the minutes before EMTs arrive.
