I've read that, usually, the officer's gun is handed off to their partner -- but that cannot always be the case, since often police officers work solo. I'm wondering if the paramedics would have a procedure for disarming the officer, or if it would take place in the hospital.
Please don't refer me to 'ask a cop,' because I've had problems in the past getting accurate information there.
I have Googled several different variations of: injured cop, ER, disarming, disarming procedures, hospital weapons policy, and several related terms. (All to no avail.)
I can 'fake it' if I have to, but it would be wonderful to have some solid information on what really happens. I know it's a bit different for every municipality, but a little info can go a long way.
ETA: Thank you for the responses. I now have what I need and am very grateful for the information!
