Police honored for saving 921 lives across Delco

District Attorney Jack Whelan and Delaware County Councilman Dave White, Co-Chairs of the Delaware County Heroin Task hosted a ceremony to honor police officers across the county for their heroic actions in saving lives with Narcan on Oct. 27 at the Drexelbrook. Since the implementation of a county-wide law enforcement naloxone program in 2014 police officers in Delaware County have saved the lives of 921 residents who had become unresponsive after an opioid overdose. The program has served as a model for other counties and states across the country. The ceremony also featured 4 inspirational residents who were saved by police officers by the use of Narcan and are now in long-term recovery.
