DARLINGTON - The City of Darlington Police Department recently announced it has entered into an agreement with Rural Medical Ambulance Service to stock all Darlington police cars with Narcan, a lifesaving medicine that reverses the effects of opiate-based drug overdoses, like heroin. According to Darlington Police Chief Jason King, all Darlington police officers attended training to learn how to use Narcan and the department recently finalized its partnership with Rural Medical Ambulance Service to receive the medicine. The decision to enter into the agreement is a result of the continued spread of heroin abuse throughout the state, which both police and EMS believe will inevitably affect Darlington.
