A thread in the verified forum brought this question to mind:
A lot of us officers and deputies have found ourselves with people who are about to die, whether it's giving CPR trying to keep someone alive, or (as in my case) holding an unconscious man after a crash, watching him wake up and stare me in the eyes for a second, then die.
My question is this, what are the "rules" of giving last rites (thanks for the spelling fix)? I'd thought about doing it on that crash but I really don't know how or what to say.

At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat
An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.
They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

I know that most Depts have a lay Preacher, Decon or even a Chaplain in their dept so you may want to check with them for guidance.

I think giving a generic prayer would be appropriate, regardless of the religion of the recipient. I know I've done that before, and I'll do it again if the need to arises.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
