Arkansas police medical training saving lives


JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- More than 15 Arkansans are alive right now because of a growing specialized training course for central Arkansas police officers.

The training is a part of a program that teaches officers tactical medical techniques to treat fellow officers and victims before EMS arrives. It's been in Arkansas for three years, but has already saved more than seven lives of police officers in Texas, and almost 70 in Arizona.

"S.W.A.T. team has obtained this training for years," said training instructor and North Little Rock police officer Robert Cupps.

"Your heart rate goes up, you can feel that same kind of stress," added Officer Benjamin Pace who took part in Wednesday's training.

Officers learn how to tactically neutralize a target, while applying pressure and a tunicate to an injured officer or person.
