I honestly never thought of the kit being used on ME, but rather having it to use on someone else who was wounded. Unless we (fellow officers) all have one and carry it in the same exact place, how would my coworkers know where to look for it? Or even know that I have one?
Interested in how you guys do it that already have these.
