Minister Musa Says Police Need EMT Training

Minister of Home Affairs, Kareem Musa, readily admitted that it would require additional training for police officers to know how to properly move and handle injured victims. But he does hold the personal view that victims should be transported as soon as possible for medical attention.


Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs

“We have 2,300, now 2,400 sorry, around 2,500 police officers with the graduating class coming out tomorrow, and definitely looking at training moving forward like you’re rightly saying, that perhaps we have to give them greater training when it comes to E.M.T services. If someone appears to have life, you should take him to the hospital. That is my personal opinion, regardless of the fact that you will be blamed afterwards for taking him to the hospital, to me it is better to err on the side of caution and take that individual to the hospital.”
