Are police officers authourized to move an unresponsive patient


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have a question regarding law enforcement dealings with unresponsive patients at the scene. For background on myself, I successfully completed the EMT-B course at TEEX in College Station, Texas back in 2010, but never actually worked as an EMT. The training was a requirement for a contract in Iraq. So what are the rules regarding police moving an unresponsive patient that's in no imminent danger. I realize that some departments have EMT trained and licensed officers, but what I witnessed from the officers was complete incompetency at the least, or an attempt to cover their tracks at worst. The context for which I'm asking needs to remain on the down low for now. Thanks for your time and consideration!
