State Police now have a new device to help save lives. More than 72 defibrillators were given to officers today. State police say in the near future an additional 80 Units will have the heart saving devices. Earlier this month Lovelace Medical Center and the Heart Hospital of New Mexico Foundation donated $15,000 to the New Mexico State Police to purchase automated defibrillators. They say heart attack victims living in rural areas have a decreased mortality rate with the devices.
