Further Naloxone administrations by Police Scotland officers
Although Police Scotland's six-month pilot period as part of the Naloxone Test of Change has now concluded, officers are still carrying and using Naloxone across Scotland.
It was successfully administered three times on Wednesday, 10 November, 2021 - twice by police officers and once by a member of the public.
An officer involved in policing duties at COP26 in Glasgow was able to assist colleagues who came across an unconscious person.
In Forth Valley, officers responded to a call from a member of the public who were concerned for a person suffering a suspected overdose.
A further incident was reported in Glasgow where officers dealing with an unconscious person were approached by a member of the public who was carrying Naloxone, and was able to administer it to the casualty.
On all three occasions, the casualties regained consciousness and received further first aid treatment.
All officers who are trained in the use of Naloxone can continue to carry their kits and use them as and when required.
