Brockway, PA – The Brockway borough police department had some room in its budget to purchase tourniquets for each officer.

The tourniquets have a holster that clips to the officers’ belts and can be used quickly in an emergency situation.

Police Chief Terry Young has been updating Brockway’s police equipment over the past few years, and the tourniquets join recent additions such as small battering rams, NARCAN sprays, and updated bulletproof vests.
