The jury in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, charged with the murder of George Floyd last May, heard testimony on Tuesday from members of the police department who trained him in safely using force and providing first aid.

Chauvin, who is white, pressed his knee into the neck of Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man in handcuffs, for about nine minutes on May 25, 2020, a scene that ignited global protests against police brutality.

The county medical examiner has ruled Floyd's death a homicide at the hands of the police. Chauvin's lawyers argue Floyd's death was a drug overdose, though prosecutors have said medical evidence would contradict that.

Here are some of the important moments from the seventh day of testimony on Tuesday:

SERGEANT KER YANG, CRISIS INTERVENTION TRAINING COORDINATOR

Sergeant Ker Yang, a crisis intervention training coordinator for the Minneapolis Police Department, testified that Chauvin completed 40 hours of training on dealing with suspects going through a crisis.

Yang said police are trained to use principles such as respect and trust in crisis intervention situations, and how to spot and interact with suspects going through a crisis.

LIEUTENANT JOHNNY MERCIL, USE-OF-FORCE INSTRUCTOR

Mercil testified that he trains Minneapolis police officers in how to use a proportional amount of force and properly use neck restraints, handcuffs and straps.

"If you can use the least amount of force to meet your objectives, it is safer and better," Mercil testified. "It's very important to be careful."

Mercil testified that a neck restraint designed to render a suspect unconscious is authorized only when the suspect is actively and aggressively resisting.

On cross-examination, Mercil agreed with Chauvin's attorney Eric Nelson when asked whether officers must protect themselves when arresting unruly subjects during evolving situations.

Nelson questioned Mercil about safety precautions officers need to take when using neck restraints and body weight to restrain individuals.

"We tell them to stay away from the neck when possible," Mercil told jurors.

The city's police chief testified on Monday that Chauvin violated department rules and its ethics code while arresting Floyd.

NICOLE MACKENZIE, MEDICAL SUPPORT COORDINATOR

Officer Nicole Mackenzie, who trained officers including Chauvin in how and when to perform CPR, told the jury that if officers cannot find a pulse on a subject, they are taught to immediately begin CPR. In Floyd's arrest, Chauvin did not perform CPR.

"Just because they're speaking doesn't mean they're breathing adequately," Mackenzie testified.

Questioned by the defense, Mackenzie said that officers must take into account the impact drugs have on a subject's behavior and should consider the safety of their surroundings when deciding whether to administer first aid.
