Around 90 officers from agencies in several local counties met at MVCC today to receive training to use the anti-opiate overdose drug Naloxone by injection and through a nasal application.

The training today included an hour long session that teaches officers how to use Naloxone and a two hour long class that trains officers to teach other members of their local departments on how to administer Naloxone.

Utica Police Lt. Steve Hauck says a few UPD officers were taught how to be trainers today, so now they will be able to do a widespread training to the rest of the department in Utica.

Hauck added that for law enforcement, there’s nothing more important than saving lives.

After completing the training, officers will each get a free Naloxone kit that uses nasal spray to administer the drug instead of an injection.
