The HSV Citizens Police Academy Alumni Assn. received a generous grant from the Arkansas Community Foundation for $1700.00 to purchase NARCAN kits for the HSV Police Department.
These kits are used by officers when they are confronted with a person who is in an opiod drug overdose situation and/or unconscious. These kits provide a nasal injectable dose of a counter agent that when used on an overdosed patient it will revive the patient to a conscience state saving the patient from possible death.
With this donation, 13 Narcan kits were purchased, each containing 2 injectable doses. These kits have a expiration period and need replacing at certain intervals. Each patrol officer carries a kit and these 13 kits will replace current kits due to expire over the next few months. Pictured here are Chief Ricky Middleton and Sargent Brian Nickols receiving the new kits.
The Citizens Police Academy Alumni and HSV Police Department sincerely thank the Arkansas community foundation for their generous gift supporting the health and safety of our officers and citizens
