“Today Pickaway County law enforcement received a generous donation from Hope Valley, Inc., Said Sheriff Hafey on Facebook, “They provided Naloxone (NARCAN) to your local agencies. Deputies and Officers currently carry Naloxone to aid those who are overdosing but did not carry doses for personal protection. Our law enforcement personnel often encounter dangerous drugs, such as Fentanyl, and run the risk of being accidentally exposed. By having this medication issued to each Deputy and Officer, they will be able to self-administer it until the arrival of EMS personnel.
We wish to thank Hope Valley Recovery for helping keep Pickaway County’s Law Enforcement safe!
