It’s another life-saving method that is being tested by 11 Duluth Police Officers: carrying Narcan.

It’s a medication used to treat people who are experiencing an opioid overdose, as it reverses the effects of the opioids.

Gold Cross and the Duluth Fire Department already had the med on hand but now police were recently trained and are taking part in a test program.

The program is to see what the department would need to do to potentially outfit all officers with the med.

“We had about an hour long training here the other day very successful local doctors that helped us out with the training,” said Lieutenant Jeff Kazel with Duluth Police.

The test program will take place over the course of the next year so far it is going well.
