Epilepsy and the Police Service

11th October 2017

There has been some incidents reported over the years of people with Epilepsy being arrested and receiving unsuitable management of their Epilepsy in some cases causing distress for the person and the police officers involved.

An awareness of Epilepsy and the different types of seizures is paramount for the officers to be able to identify seizures and therefore to be able to react quickly and appropriately.

Training officers in this field maybe help reduce these incidents.

Contact National Epilepsy Training for more information or to enquire about how we could provide training to police officers.
