AMMAN — Jordanian and Canadian officials on Sunday oversaw a demonstration of advanced emergency medical response skills for police officers in the event they were involved in medically critical incidents, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.اضافة اعلان

The demonstration was followed by a graduation ceremony for thirteen Public Security Department (PSD) officers trained to instruct colleagues in the PSD and strengthen the organization’s internal training capabilities. 

The specialized training was delivered by the Policing Support Team on behalf of the Government of Canada through funding from the Counter-Terrorism Capacity Building Program.

The event is part of a broader initiative to train women police officers for operational security roles. Since 2018, Canada has supported critical incident response training in the form of women’s firearms and search techniques courses and emergency medical training. The firearms course aims to enhance the safety and security of all women and girls by having a balanced police agency that reflects the population it serves.

The emergency medical training gives both men and women officers the skills to provide lifesaving medical interventions during a critical incident to keep injured victims alive until medical professionals can safely enter the scene.
