At 12:49 a.m. on June 15, 2018, Kenosha Sheriff’s Deputies responded with Somers Rescue to a private residence located in the 5500 block of Washington Road, for a medical call. The report was that a 39-year-old man was not breathing, possibly from a drug overdose.

When Deputy Christopher Schneider arrived, he located this man in a medical crisis, unconscious and barely breathing. Dep. Schneider administered a dose of Naloxone (Narcan), and the man began breathing normally and regained consciousness. There was an empty syringe located in the room, next to the man. The man admitted that he had been using heroin.

This man was taken by Somers Rescue to Froedtert Hospital (Kenosha Campus), where he was treated and released by Emergency Room staff. Deputies arrested the man on one count of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and one count of Bail Jumping.

In response to the rising opioid crisis, the KSD joined with the Kenosha County Health Department and Infinity HealthCare Physicians, S.C. to train Deputies in the administration of Naloxone. This incident marks the first time a Deputy utilized Naloxone.

Sheriff David Beth is grateful for our partnership with the medical community, in making the KSD better equipped to save lives.
