The Possibility of a Second Chance — Law Enforcement and Naloxone

As a result of the efforts of Overdose-Lifeline and our community partners, more and more Law Enforcement Agencies in Indiana are carrying the life-saving drug Naloxone (marketed under the trademark Narcan).  In the weeks to come, the following law enforcement agencies will be trained and prepared to save lives with this powerful weapon against death by overdose:

Boone County Sheriff’s Department
Hancock County Sheriff’s Department
Whitestown Police Department
Lebanon Police Department
New Palestine Police Department
Fortville Police Department


Recently, ODL offered a presentation to the law enforcement agencies in Johnson County.  Sheriff Doug Cox worked with Johnson County Memorial Hospital to secure the funding for all county Law Enforcement agencies to obtain Naloxone.  A few days ago, Johnson County Sheriff’s Deputy Chuck Murphy had his Naloxone training and received a Naloxone kit.  24 hours later, he found himself with a Trafalgar resident rendered unconscious by drugs.  Deputy Murphy dispensed the Naloxone and brought her around.  Naloxone saves lives, and every member of Law Enforcement who receives this kit and this training is in a position to give someone the most precious gift – a second chance at life.
