LS)--An Enid Police Department officer received a commendation for using Narcan to potentially save a local teenager’s life last month. Enid News and Eagle reports, just before midnight Sept. 18, EPD Officer Jeran Jones was en route to a disturbance call with his windows down when he heard a female yelling on West Poplar. Jones made contact with her in the yard of a residence and learned a juvenile male was inside suffering from an overdose. Jones ran inside the house and began rendering aid, learning from the teenager’s family that he had ingested four Percocet pills at a party earlier that night. After several challenges, Jones was able to administer department-issued Narcan — a nasal spray version of a life-saving medication that can temporarily stop or reverse the effects of an opioid or heroin overdose. Jones began communicating with the teenager, instructing him to breathe while waiting for Life EMS to arrive and take the teen to the hospital, where he would recover. Jones joined EPD in August 2020 and graduated from the first police academy held at the department in March. Job well done Officer Jones.
