What an AED treats is an abnormal heart rhythm called Ventricular Fibrillation (or V-Fib) that causes the heart to stop circulating blood. V-Fib is a heart condition in which the heart quivers instead of mechanically pumping the blood throughout the body. The most effective treatment for V-Fib is CPR and use of a defibrillator.
Automated External Defibrillators are designed to allow anyone to use them regardless if they have been formally trained on their operations. AED's accomplish this through use of voice instructions, pictures and prompts. An AED will only deliver a shock if indicated and is safe when used correctly.
All Eaton Police Officers are trained in the proper care and use of Automated External Defibrillators. Officers respond on every heart related medical emergency.

New Fingerprinting Process - The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is in the process of implementing a new, Statewide Digital Fingerprinting Process known as CABS (Colorado Applicant Background Services) in response to Senate Bill 17-189. The CBI recently awarded two contracts allowing third party vendors to print and submit non-criminal applicant fingerprints for the State. These vendor services will be located throughout the State, increasing applicants’ ability to obtain fingerprints in a timely manner. These services will also reduce the burden on Law Enforcement agencies as the vendors will electronically transmit the civil fingerprints. The processing time and rejections will decrease tremendously.
Approved Fingerprinting Vendor
How the CABS Program Will Work:
Appointments and online registration are required! You can choose to be fingerprinted at any of CABS locations; they are in the process of opening over 40 locations throughout the State of Colorado.
When you need fingerprinting the new, streamlined process looks like this:
1. Online Registration (required) - You will register through the online Enrollment Center at www.coloradofingerprinting.com where you will identify yourself and the entity requesting your report.
2. Convenient Location and Time - Use the Enrollment Center to select a convenient location, date and time for your appointment.
3. Payment or Billing Account - After providing all required information, you can pay with either credit card, money order or provide a billing account number if provided by your requesting institution.
4. Confirmation - You receive an appointment confirmation with your "Order Number" by text and by email.
5. Fingerprinting - Go to the fingerprint location at your scheduled time. Provide the "Order Number" to the enrollment agent along with your government issued photo ID (drivers license, state issued ID, US passport or foreign-issued passport). Your livescan fingerprints, digital photo and digital signature are then captured and submitted to CBI.
6. Results - The results are returned by CBI to the entity requesting your report.
7. Status - You can login to the Enrollment Center at any time to see the status of your fingerprint submission.
Please contact CABS 720-292-2722, toll free 833-224-2227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need assistance.
