IDPH Unveils Plans To Equip All Iowa Law Enforcement With Narcan

WINDSOR HEIGHTS, Iowa — Big things come in small packages.  “It is a critical tool for our officers to have that to save a life,” said Windsor Heights Police Chief Chad McCluskey.

The Iowa Department of Public Health received an additional allocation of $2.3 million dollars for a state opioid response grant and they hope to supply every law enforcement agency, city, town, tribal police officer or county sheriff’s deputy with two doses of Narcan.  IDPH Opioid Treatment Program Director Kevin Gabbert said, “If all six thousand officers were to come forward, we’d be looking at about $450,000 for that purchase and we are willing to do that because we do have grant funds available.”
