BILL NUMBER:S7886

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law and the execu-
tive law, in relation to requiring police officers to be retrained in
cardiopulmonary resuscitation every two years

PURPOSE: To require all police officers to be routinely trained in the
administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Adds a new section of law to the general munici-
pal law; section 208-h.

JUSTIFICATION: In response to the tragic death of Briana Ojeda, it is
imperative that all police officers are adequately trained in the admin-
istration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This easy to learn
procedure has been proven to save lives in emergency situations and
could have helped save the life of Briana Ojeda. This bill will require
every police officer in New York state to be retrained and tested in
CPR. By requiring that all police officers are know how to administer
CPR we can ensure that those in need will be saved in the future.
