Our policy does not specifically cover the use of chemical agents / OC in regards to EDPs. Generally, we will not deploy to EDP’s unless there is a high threat to public safety or they have committed a criminal offensive that meets our call out criteria. We will adjust our chemical agent / OC tactics when there are valid medical considerations for an EDP.
