Milwaukee deputies carry Narcan to protect K-9 partners

Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently began carrying Narcan, the opioid antidote, specifically to be used on their K-9 units.

All deputies who work with the department’s 17 dogs have been trained by a veterinarian on how to administer Narcan to their animal partners. Narcan has been available “for a couple of months,” a sheriff’s department spokesperson confirmed to WISN 12 NEWS.
