This course is certified by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board.
This course meets state guidelines for the following mandated subject area:
- Procedural Justice (every 3 yrs.)
This course covers the concepts and practical application of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care and Officer-Citizen High Threat Casualty Extraction in the patrol environment. Officers will learn to identify and treat the most commonly encountered wound patterns and plan/execute an Officer-Citizen Extraction, then demonstrate the concepts and techniques learned during scenario-based exercises.
On completion of the course, each participant will receive a North American Rescue Products Individual Patrol Officer Kit (IPOK) for duty use. Each sealed kit contains: One C-A-T Combat Application Tourniquet, an ETD Emergency Trauma Dressing, a packet of Z-Fold Gauze, and a pair of trauma gloves.
Students are required to bring their duty belt/gear and wear clothing appropriate for physically demanding scenario training. Course exercises will allow each student to apply critical lifesaving skills in a dynamic patrol-based setting. Due to the hands-on nature of this training, course enrollment will be limited to 25 officers.
