In the spring of 2015, the Winston-Salem Police Department began a training initiative for a select group of officers to recognize opioid related overdose signs and to administer nasal naloxone hydrochloride to resuscitate a subject in the early stages of an overdose. This effort was in response to the rising number of drug related overdoses in Winston-Salem. Currently 80 Winston-Salem Police Officers have received the training and nasal naloxone kits. This program will be expanded for additional officers later this year.
Officer Robertson is a veteran Police Officer and has been employed with the City of Winston-Salem since February 2011. He is currently assigned to the Patrol Division, District 1."
