The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Office has received a grant, from the Columbus Regional Health Foundation, for seed funding to purchase Narcan, an antidote that can temporarily reverse the lethal effects of an opiate overdose caused by prescription medications or heroin.
Since Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Deputies are many times the first to arrive at the scene of an overdose, the equipment that they have available can mean life or death for someone.
Narcan is a prescription medication that blocks the effects and reverses an overdose. It does not require a medical professional to administer Narcan.
“Narcan will allow Bartholomew County Deputies to be able to counter the effects of an overdose which could potentially save someone’s life,” said Sheriff Matt Myers.
“CRH Foundation rarely funds first-responder equipment requests but this project was unique in several ways. It was initiated by a CRH physician who trained Sheriff and Police department officers to administer the drug and CRH is making it possible for these county and city departments to purchase the drug at cost,” explained CRH President Julie Abedian. “This is a one-year grant that gets the County officers started and ensures that all first-responders in Bartholomew County are equipped to save lives in overdose situations.”
BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY SHERIFF MATT MYERS
ANNOUNCES THREE COMMUNITY MEETINGS
I believe it is important to strengthen community and law enforcement partnerships. Therefore, we have organized three community meetings to discuss issues important to Bartholomew County residents, the Neighborhood Watch program and to see what the Sheriff’s Office can do to better serve people and businesses in these particular areas of our County.
The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 31, 6:00 p.m. in the Hope Town Hall, 404 Jackson Street.
The second meeting will be held on Thursday, April 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the Clifford Volunteer Fire Department, 7850 N Depot Street.
The third meeting will be held on Thursday, April 23, at 6:00 p.m. in the Elizabethtown Volunteer Fire Department, 700 Washington Street.
This is our opportunity to have an informal conversation with residents and your opportunity to meet with members of my Administration as well as members of the Sheriff’s Merit Board.
