Nogales Police Officers will now carry Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan.

In a tweet, the Nogales Police Department said they are taking a proactive approach and equipping officers with Naloxone. Naloxone's purpose is to reduce deadly opiate/opioid overdose.

 

NPD partnered with the MCHC and collaborated with Dr. Pereira and his staff to make this possible.
