On 11.16.2015 at 1630 hours a Northern York County Regional Police Officer was at a business located in the 2100 block of Susquehanna Trail in Manchester Township when he was advised that a subject had overdosed on Heroin in the bathroom.

The Officer found a 20 year old female unconscious in the bathroom.  The Officer was unable to awaken the female.  The Officer administered a dose of Naloxone to the female.  The Officer administered a second dose of Naloxone and the female began to regain consciousness.  Once EMS arrived, the female was transported to York Hospital for further treatment.

At 1834 hours the Northern York County Regional Police Department responded to a home in the 2900 block of Village Square Drive in Dover Township for a report of a 25 year old male in cardiac arrest.  Officers and members of the Dover Township Fire Department arrived on scene and found the male in respiratory arrest.  One vial of Naloxone was administered to the male.  He regained consciousness shortly thereafter.  HE was then transported to York Hospital for further treatment.

This is the 22nd and 23rd times that Northern York County Regional Police Officers have administered Naloxone.  Northern York County Regional Police Officers began carrying Naloxone on March 30, 2015.

The York County Naloxone program is sponsored by the York County District Attorney’s Office
