The Lake Forest Police Foundation was founded to promote a partnership between the Lake Forest Police Department and the community in order to solicit and distribute funds that will assist the Department in providing safety and security within the community.
IOTK’s provide officers with the equipment necessary to self-treat a gun shot or puncture would if immediate care is not available due to scene safety or lack of availability of EMS. It is designed for officers to be able to provide life saving care in the event of a major trauma injury to themselves or someone else. This cutting edge equipment was previously not a part of officer issued equipment because both the tools and the training were outside the budget of the Lake Forest Police Department. The IOTK’s and the training given to the LFPD officers will provide the community with an extra level of protection in case they have to respond to a major trauma. The LFPD officers were provided the kits and training, sponsored by the Lake Forest Police Foundation, in February of 2015.
