Cherokee County Deputies Equipped with New Anti-Drug Kit
Deputies in Cherokee County now carry a life-saving antidote. In early January, District Attorney Mike O’Dell gave the Cherokee County Sheriff’s office four Naloxone kits.
The kits contain an easy-to-use antidote that is intended to protect first responders who may accidentally come into contact with a dangerous drug and save someone who has overdosed.
The Alabama Department of Public Health gave an additional 30 kits. Sheriff Jeff Shaver says, “It allows his deputies to have peace of mind in case of accidental exposure to a toxic opioid.”
