CHPD Officers First To Get Nar-Can Training
Posted on 05/31/2016

Cottonwood Heights Police Department was the first Utah law enforcement agency to receive Naloxone (Nar-Can), a life-saving chemical that counteracts the effects of heroin and other opioid overdoses.

A few days after being issued Nar-Can and getting training for its use, CHPD officers Casey Davies and Michael Alcivar got the chance to administer Nar-Can to a man who had overdosed on heroin. Their actions brought the man out of his overdose, and he was able to get medical treatment.
