SOUTH BEND, Ind - The South Bend Police Department purchased 50 new automated external defibrillators to replace outdated equipment, according to the department's representatives.
Officials say these new automated external defibrillators, also known as AEDs, cost around $1,100 each, though the department was able to purchase these new models with the help of two different grants awarded to the department at the end of 2022.
According to representatives of the department, officers having these AEDs in their vehicles will help save lives.
Officers are receiving training on these new models, which have voice instructions to guide officers through the life-saving process.
South Bend police officers are re-certified in CPR and AED training every other year, according to department representatives.
