Lawmakers propose equipping officers with heroin antidote

Several state lawmakers are coming together in support of a heroin antidote they say can save lives.

Lawmakers say Bill 13-76 would allow first responders to administer Naloxone in the case of an overdose.

They say this antidote, also called Narcan, is safe and has no potential for abuse.

Plans to equip officers with this antidote are currently underway in parts of New Jersey and New York.
