ISP Makes NARCAN Saves

The number of saves Illinois State Police Troopers are making with NARCAN is on the rise. There have already been two saves logged in 2018. ISP made a total of 16 saves last year. In all, there have been 25 saves counted since troopers started carrying NARCAN in late 2015. Master Sergeant Mike Link, Public Information Officer with the Illinois State Police says whether illegal drugs or alcohol, driving under the influence puts many lives in danger.

In one incident this year, a trooper responded to a motorist assist call on the ramp from I-270 eastbound to 1-255 southbound in Madison County. That same day, a trooper in Rockford made a save on a 20-year-old female on a liquor store parking lot.
