Councilman Dan Bekar asked police Chief Tim Gladis during the latest council meeting if the department would consider purchasing Narcan, which acts as an antidote to heroin on an overdose victim by improving respiration levels.
The drug is not currently available to the city's police force, but Gladis
said they could pursue funding to make that possible.
"Obviously, if we are able to save a life with something as simple as an emergency injection (we will)," Gladis
"To date, we haven't had any overdose deaths from bad heroin - although there isn't any good heroin."
said the city could pursue grant funding through the Ohio
Attorney General's Office.
