Interview with Deputy Steve Doucette, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Journal of Special Operations Medicine

    • Life Sciences

We take a swing into civilian practice with the world-renowned rotor wing tactical detail from Los Angeles. Steve helps us better understand the original transfer of tactical skills from military to law enforcement setting after the Korean war. We then find out about the absorption of tactical medicine into special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams and its recent drastic evolution, thanks to the hard-won lessons from the battlefield. Our interview ends with an outstanding overview of the difference between a tactical medic, tactical medicine, and TEMS (which Alex, obviously, didn’t understand). Please let us know what you think about our foray into civilian medicine! Visit our Social Media @jsomonline https://jsom.us/Podcast
