2/23/2017 - Bethel Officer Administers Narcan
Last night, Bethel Police Officer McKinney responded to a possible overdose. Upon arrival he located an unconscious male who appeared to be suffering from an opiate overdose. Recognizing the symptoms, he immediately administered Narcan intranasally. All Bethel Police vehicles are equipped with Narcan and all Officers are trained in its use. Officer McKinney is the first officer to use Narcan since its agency wide deployment. Officer McKinney's actions may well have saved this man's life.
