The entire Albany State University Police department took refresher and certification classes on health lifesaving Tuesday.
All the University's police officers, security guards, and dispatchers took emergency life saving courses, taught by Phoebe Putney Hospital staff.

The officers went over how to do compression chest pumps, mouth to mouth resuscitation,.and  automatic defibrillator use in emergency situations.
ASU Police officials say they want to make sure their entire staff knows what to do in a health emergency.

"Our officers are getting today, learning how to do their breast 30 compressions," said ASU Police Captain Anita Allen.  "We are learning how to clear the air scene, to make sure it's safe."

The Albany State Police keep defibrillators in their patrol cars, and they retrained on using them, to make sure all their personnel are ready in case of any health emergency on campus.
