Editor's Note:

Dr. Matt Sztajnkrycer, a Mayo Clinic trauma doc who works very closely with law enforcement, is conducting a study on downed officer rescue. The survey, which was recently announced in Force Science News, will "help improve current understanding, and therefore training, in downed officer rescue techniques," says Matt. He would like to invite all PoliceOne members who have not taken the survey yet to share their thoughts. Take the survey now.

Questions can be e-mailed to Matt at sztajnkrycer.matthew@mayo.edu.
