MCP officers use training in Narcan to save a life.

Members of the Maryland Capitol Police used Narcan to save the life of a person suffering from a possible drug overdose. On Tuesday afternoon, MCP officers responded to a medical assistance call for an unresponsive subject in the courtyard area of 301 Preston - State Complex. Upon arrival to the scene, the officers observed the subject, who was unconscious and displaying symptoms of a potential opioid overdose. Using their training in Narcan, the officers were able to render aid, preventing what was described as a potentially fatal event. The subject was then transported to a local hospital for immediate treatment. Narcan (naloxone) is a medication that blocks the effects of opioids. MCP in coordination with DHMH were trained in use of Narcan. Each State Office Complex are equipped with Narcan response kits. This is the first time officers have had to use it.
