  1. Law enforcement agencies and out-of-hospital emergency care.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    National Association of EMS Physicians Annual Meeting. San Diego (USA), 1995/07.

    Study objective 

    We sought to assess the involvement of law enforcement agencies in out-of-hospital emergency medical care and their attitudes toward expanded roles in emergency medical services (EMS) systems.

    Methods 

    We mailed a 20-question survey to 800 police chiefs and sheriffs randomly selected from a list of all law enforcement agencies in the United States.

    The questions focused on the characteristics of each law enforcement agency, its current level of involvement in providing out-of-hospital emergency medical care, and the characteristics of its associated community and local EMS system.

    The survey concluded with four statements to assess officer attitudes toward an expanded role in EMS-related activities.

    We used the X2 or Fisher exact test to analyze differences in proportions.

    The alpha-error rate was set at. 05.

    Results 

    Seventeen surveys were returned as undeliverable.

    Of the remaining 783 surveys, we received 602 responses (77%). Five hundred forty-nine (70.1%) of the respondents were the primary law enforcement agencies in their communities ; they make up the final sample.

    The median number of officers per agency was 12 (range, 1 to 2,623), and the median population served was 6,936 (range, 150 to 1,500,000).

    Responses indicated that 442 (80.7%) agencies responded to one or more specific types of medical emergencies and 263 (50.3%) provided some level of patient care. (...)
