Duluth Police Carrying Narcan to Treat Overdoses

The Duluth Police Department is now equipped with a new tool that can save lives by reversing heroin overdoses. 

In response to the growing concern of overdoses in the area, the Duluth Police Department sought and received 100 Narcan kits for patrol officers.  

The kits were obtained by a grant submitted by the Arrowhead EMS Association.   

All Duluth Police Department patrol officers have been trained on opioids are, how to recognize an overdose situation and how to properly administer narcan.  

Police say over the past three years, the Northland has seen a dramatic increase in opioid related overdose calls. 

The use of the Narcan kits has proven to be very successful throughout the country, and right here in the Northland.
