The medical records of the Officer are confidential, so they can not simply be turned over, upon demand. Your attorney will have to file a motion and ask the Judge that these be released or in the alternative, the Officer disclose what medications, if any, they take. You will need to show that this is relevant and if the Officer does take drug X, Y or Z, that it could impair their ability to observe, interpret and understand the events in question. Moreover, the Officer can be deposed and during the deposition, it can be inquired into and you can see if they will admit to anything.
