PATERSON, N.J. - Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Wayne Police Chief James Clarke announce that law enforcement officers in Passaic County administered Naloxone to one subject on January 19, 2017. Naloxone is a medicine administered by way of a spray into the subject’s nostrils to counteract an opioid overdose.

Wayne police officers deployed Naloxone at 4:00 p.m. to a 32 year old male who resides in Kinnelon, New Jersey. When officers arrived at the location, the subject was observed to be unresponsive, breathing slowly and displaying blue lips. Officers administered two doses of Naloxone and the subject became responsive and alert. Care of the subject was transferred to local emergency medical services.

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 sixth (6th) Naloxone deployment in Passaic County in 2017.
