Sabine responders get tools to fight opiate overdose

Local first responders have a new resource in helping them fight the opioid epidemic plaguing our state.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s office has granted the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office a total of 30 vials of Naloxone, a prescription medication that counteracts the effects of opioids to restore breathing during an overdose. The live-saving drugs were made available through a $1 million legal settlement between Landry and Pfizer.

“The abuse and misuse of opioids throughout Louisiana is a public safety crisis that has unfortunately taken the lives of many of our state’s people,” said Landry. “I appreciate the proactive work done by our first responders to fight back against this epidemic, and I am glad we are able to give them the Nalaxone at no cost to the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office.”

John Kennedy has raised concerns about the Louisiana Department of Corrections’ ability to protect the public after the state’s district attorneys indicated that nearly a quarter of inmates released early through Gov. Edwards’ Louisiana Justice Reinvestment Act have been arrested again. At least two of the rearrested inmates are behind bars on murder charges.

Inmates were released without the probation and parole boards evaluating the risk to public safety. In Ascension, Assumption and St. James parishes, one in three inmates who were released early have already reoffended.
