Cleburne County Sheriff Chris Brown has announced patrol deputies are now carrying Narcan, the life-saving opioid overdose nasal spray to better help protect them, and all those that live, work, and play in Cleburne County.

The spray is used to help combat the deadly effects of an opioid overdose, whether it be accidental exposure or someone illegally abusing the drug.

Brown says “Cleburne County has been fortunate in that it hasn’t been as affected as other places, even here in Arkansas, but it does exist and it is something that the department is fighting.”

Meanwhile, the Conway Police Department has received all 150 of its Narcan kits. Training has started and soon every officer will have one in their possession.

The kits were purchased through a grant from the Blue and You Foundation. Conway Police Major William Tapley spearheaded the project. Arkansas Drug Director Kirk Lane was instrumental in helping secure the grant.
