We were reading the minutes from the October meeting of West Conshohocken’s Borough Council recently (that is what we do on a Saturday night) and we came across this tidbit about the recent life saving measures taken by West Conshohocken police officers:
Chief Sinclair stated our officers saved the lives of three people in one week who overdosed on heroin by administering the overdose drug Naloxone. This has turned into a real life saving program.
We did a little research and found out that police departments across the country are training their officers to administer the drug. It is mostly used by injecting the drug into the muscle.
