WOODBURY - An overdose victim has been saved, thanks to a police officer trained to use a life-saving drug.Suffolk Police Officer Michael Alfieri used Narcan for the first time Wednesday following a 911 call about an unconscious man. The drug, which reverses the effects of a heroin or opiate overdose, saved the man's life. Alfieri had just been issued his Narcan kit two days earlier as part of a two-year pilot program at three of Suffolk's seven precincts. Supporters say the program is needed because police are often first to arrive at the scene of an overdose. But some critics say giving officers Narcan and training civilians to administer the drug removes the fear of an overdose death and encourages more drug use. Jeff Reynolds, of the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, says that's definitely not the case. "This is the logical next step given what's happening on Long Island," he says. "It doesn't increase drug use, it saves lives." Nassau police don't carry Narcan at the moment, but there have been discussions about a similar pilot program.Officials: Suffolk cop saves Mastic man from overdose
