I'm curious how other depts. deal with prisoner medical issues. At my place whenever a prisoner whines that their tummy hurts we have to take them to the hospital. This would be great if we could get rid of them but an officer has to accompany them to the hospital and stay with them until they are fit to return to the station. Sometimes on weekends/holidays this ties up an officer from the road for multiple shifts and forces people over. Obviously this creates quite an issue when we are running at minimum. Most of the depts. around me seem to operate the same way. I was curious if anywhere else has found a better way to handle this?
