(New York, NY) -- A new law signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo today requires all members of the NYPD and State Police be certified in CPR.
The legislation known as "Briana's Law" requires them to undergo CPR certification prior to graduation and every two years after that. The law is named after Briana Ojeda, an eleven-year-old New York City girl who suffered a life-threatening asthma attack and could not be saved by a police officer, who did not know CPR. The new law goes into effect October 26th.
