§ 23-5.1-2. Duty of law enforcement officers.

It shall be the duty of all law enforcement officers in this state to make a diligent effort to determine if any person they may find in a semi-conscious or unconscious condition is an epileptic or diabetic or a person who is suffering from any other type of illness which would cause semi-consciousness or unconsciousness by looking for an identification bracelet. If any law enforcement officer shall determine that an epileptic or diabetic person is actually suffering from an affliction that would cause semi-consciousness or unconsciousness, it shall be his or her duty to have the person immediately transported to a physician or to some facility where the services of a physician are available.
