Village of Delhi Police

Saved two lives in one week

On October 13, police responded to a report of an unconscious man at a Meredith Street residence. Upon their arrival, police located the unconscious 23 year old man. After observing the man’s condition, officers recognized indications that the man was likely suffering from an opioid overdose and administered naloxone.

On October 14, police responded to a Hamilton Trailer Park Road address for a report of man in cardiac arrest. Upon there arrival, police located an unconscious 26 year-old-man. Officers found that the man was breathing but was unconscious and unresponsive to stimuli. Officers realized that the man was exhibiting signs of an opioid overdose and administered naloxone. After several doses of the medication the man regained consciousness. He was transported by ambulance to the O’Connor Hospital Emergency Department for further treatment.

Naloxone is a medication that temporarily reverses an opioid overdose providing first responders a window of opportunity to safely transport overdose patients to a medical facility. While on patrol, Delhi PD officers are equipped with this life saving medication. Officers receive training and the medication is distributed through the police department’s DOH registered Opioid Overdose Prevention Program. Delhi PD’s overdose prevention program received certification with the NYS Department of Health in May of 2015 and provides training and other resources to the Delhi PD and other law enforcement agencies in Delaware County. The Police Department would like to remind the public that New York’s “911 Good Samaritan” law provides protections from charge and prosecution for drug and alcohol possession for the victim and those who seek help during an overdose. If someone suspects that a loved one is experiencing a drug or alcohol overdose don’t hesitate to call for help, as early intervention is an important factor in their recovery.
