City of Valentine has Naloxone available

The City of Valentine Police Division was recently awarded a Lean on LARM safety grant from the League Association of Risk Management (LARM) to purchase Naloxone. According to Police Chief Dana Miller, the drug is used to counteract the effects of opiods in a person’s bloodstream. Police officers currently carry the drug in a syringe kit to administer to those who may be suffering from an overdose.

“Fentanyl is a dangerous powerful narcotic reponsible for an epidemic of overdose deaths with the U.S. Up to 50 times more potent than heroin, fentanyl is extremely dangerous and even deadly to law enforcement and anyone else who may come in contact with it. The Naloxone provides our officers with a level of security they didn’t have before,” Chief Miller said.
