On Thursday, February 14, 2019, at approximately 12:45 a.m., Haltom City officers were dispatched to assist Haltom City Fire Department personnel on a suspected drug overdose in the 5200 block of Mallory Dr. Upon arrival at the residence, Haltom City officers observed a 32 year old white female that was unresponsive. Believing the female had overdosed on Heroin, officers administered three doses of Narcan to the female and began CPR. The female began regaining consciousness and began breathing.

Haltom City Fire Department personnel arrived on scene and took over care for the female. The female regained consciousness, but she was still disoriented. She was transported by MedStar Ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for further treatment.

In April of 2017, Haltom City officers were trained by Haltom City Fire Department personnel on the signs of opioid overdose and on the correct administration of Narcan. This is the first instance of a Haltom City officer administering Narcan to a patient believed to have overdosed on opioids.
