PATERSON, N.J. - Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and West Milford Police Chief Timothy Storbeck announce that law enforcement officers in Passaic County administered Naloxone to one subject on January 21, 2017. Naloxone is a medicine administered by way of a spray into the subject’s nostrils to counteract an opioid overdose.

West Milford police officers deployed Naloxone at 2:12 p.m. to a 31 year old female who resides in Hewitt, New Jersey. When officers arrived at the location, the subject was observed to be unresponsive and displaying blue lips. Officers administered one dose of Naloxone and the subject became responsive but remained sedated. Care of the subject was transferred to local emergency medical services.

Responding officers retrieved several empty bags stamped “Jackpot” from the scene.

Since 2014, members of law enforcement in Passaic County have received training in the administration of Naloxone to respond to suspected opiate overdoses. This incident is the seventh (7th) Naloxone deployment in Passaic County in 2017.
