Naloxone Overdose Kits
Sheriff Jones is excited to announce that through a grant partnership with the Criminal Justice Institute and the Blue and You Foundation, that the Pope County Sheriff’s Office has received Naloxone overdose kits for all deputies at our department. Naloxone is used to reverse opioid overdoses, which are becoming increasingly common in Arkansas, as well as the rest of the nation.
Pope County Sheriff Shane Jones stated “Our deputies come into contact with drugs and other dangerous substances on a daily basis while on patrol. My office is dedicated and committed to doing everything we can to protect our deputies in the event they encounter these drugs in the field. Our deputies will also be able to administer the Naloxone to any opioid overdose victim if the deputies arrive prior to emergency medical personnel.”
