When police are on the job, they're constantly in danger. There is always a threat that they'll be shot at, hit by a vehicle or otherwise put in danger. In most cases, it's simply a matter of time before an officer suffers a work-related injury.
If a person is electrocuted, it is important that they receive immediate medical help. While not all electrocutions result in life-long injuries or acute wounds, there is always a potential for lasting symptoms and side effects.
