On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law The Recovery Act, which provides the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) with funding for grants to assist state, local, and tribal law enforcement in supporting a broad range of activities to improve the criminal justice system. Currently, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is seeking applications for grant funding under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG). Deadline for application is May 18, 2009, 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

Every day, Law Enforcement officers are confronted with a wide range of situations and there is a strong possibility that these officers will encounter a Sudden Cardiac Arrest victim while on duty. Whether it is a stranger on the street or a fellow officer, Automated External Defibrillators are essential to saving lives & improving law enforcement programs.

Therefore, in an effort to make AEDs affordable for Law Enforcement Agencies, Philips Medical Systems and HeartSafe America have joined forces to offer a low cost AED package which includes the Philips Heartstart FRx. A few key features/advantages of this device include: High Durability, Low Cost of Ownership, Clear voice prompts and CPR Coaching.
