The Opioid Overdose Prevention team has undertaken the Law Enforcement Appreciation project.

Members compiled appreciation kits with items for each sworn officer in Yavapai County that carries Narcan, as well as the K-9s.

As Yavapai County overdoses increase, the number of times first responders must give Narcan increases.

“Partnered with current events and the trauma associated with overdose response, our officers carry a heavy weight on their shoulders from these experiences,” Yavapai County Community Health Services said in a new release Friday. “They have delivered to each police department and to the Sheriff’s Office.”
