The sheriff’s office started Narcan training a month before a state law was signed in May 2015 that mandated police departments use Narcan.
The first life-saving use of Narcan by the sheriff’s office was in March 2016. The department has saved seven lives with Narcan.
The office has acquired and assigned more than 100 Narcan kits that will cover every level of the office from patrol to administration. The office has trained about 600 personnel on how to use Narcan. Training will continue every two years.
