Police Department To Carry Anti-Opiod Drug
One Florida city plans to train and equip all its officers with a life-saving drug, Naloxone, so they'll be able to help a drug-overdose victim if they are the first on the scene.
The Lakeland Ledger reports that Winter Haven's police chief plans to have every officer trained and equipped with the drug by the end of this year. Bird hopes to complete training before the end of June.
Naloxone can be injected into a muscle under the skin or administered through an IV or the nasal passages.
