** Public Safety Announcement ***

2 calls due to suspicious or odd behavior believed to be linked to active drug use
2 deaths believed to be possible drug-related overdoses
2 newborns who tested positive for drugs in their systems at birth
First and foremost – DO NOT USE ANY KIND OF ILLEGAL DRUGS OR UNPRESCRIBED PRESCRIPTIONS!
Second – If you observe a person who you believe may be experiencing an active overdose: Call 911 immediately and if able, perform life-saving measures such as CPR while waiting for law enforcement and medical personnel to arrive.
These two actions could help save lives!
Please report any suspicious activity to the Rock Springs Police Department at 307-352-1575.
