Athens-Clarke County Police Department equipping officers with defibrillators

In July 2023, the Athens-Clarke County Police Department deployed eight Automatic External Defibrillator units to officers in the field. The AEDs will be carried in patrol cars by officers specifically trained in their use.

Captain Christopher Nichols, who is also an EMT, teaches emergency medical care and CPR/First Aid for the department.

“The Automatic External Defibrillator is an effective and immediate treatment for sudden cardiac arrest. It is a valuable lifesaving tool for officers, who are often first on the scene of an emergency." Nichols said.

Captain Christopher Nichols leads a training class for the use of AEDs.

In addition to the AED units, all ACCPD officers are equipped with First Aid training, Buddy Kits (tourniquets, chest seals, and wound care), and Naloxone (opioid antagonist).

ACCPD offers additional advanced training to officers, including EMT certification.

Nichols said the AEDs were bought using a grant so there was no direct cost to the county.

Hey. The other good news is crime is down! 50 less popos couldn't possibly reduce arrests!


I am not sure turning popos into quasi EMS is a good thing. Can't wait for gangbanger to fake a heart attack.

Officers come in all ages and sizes. Additionally, stressful situations, exposure to chemicals & drugs can produce situations where immediate life saving care is necessary

Pa-leese. The police don't need Naloxone. Let nature take its course.

The good news is the city probably didn’t have to spend too much buy many of them since ACCPD is over 50 officers short…thanks to the cop hating liberal woke policies designed to throw cops under the bus along with crap pay, resulting in the encouragement of police officers quitting, retiring early or transferring to other cities police departments where their local governments treat them with respect instead of vilifying them like our city leaders do and pay them what they’re worth and cities where a DA supports their efforts instead of our DA having them waste their time.

But HEY….you all get the government you vote for, RIGHT?!

Sleep peacefully wokesters!!!

I AM on topic!!

I was talking specifically about the medical items purchased and that the county probably saved a lot of money by not having to buy a lot of them. And then I qualified my statement by giving the reasons why.
