Train-the Trainer for Law Enforcement
April 4, 2014
Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz´s office hosted the Narcan Train-the-Trainer for Law Enforcement
training at the Thorny Lea Golf Course in Brockton, MA.
The training was attended by police and court officers from throughout Plymouth County. Officers were taught how opioids affect users, how to recognize an
opioid overdose, and how to respond accordingly.
Attendees heard from Dr. Daniel Muse, an Emergency Room physician from Signature Healthcare in Brockton and from Quincy and Stoughton police officers about the successes of
their pilot programs.
Participants left the training with the necessary materials to implement Narcan trainings within their own departments.
Each participant received one supply of Narcan, and the documents needed to
order a supply for their respective departments.
