SPD Officers Use Naloxone, CPR to Revive man

Published on May 23, 2017
Police responded to a report of a man down in the 1500 block of 9th Avenue just before midnight and were quickly flagged down by a woman. The woman pointed officers to a man lying on the sidewalk, and said he had recently used heroin.

Officer Jared Levitt and Sergeant Dave Hockett saw the 40-year-old man was struggling to breathe and gave him a dose of nasal naloxone and began CPR a short time later.

SFD medics arrived and took over treatment of the man, who regained consciousness and was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

This incident marks the 16th time officers have used Naloxone since Seattle police began carrying it in mid-March. The case will become part of the ongoing study conducted by the University of Washington into SPD’s use of Naloxone for a possible department-wide deployment.

As a reminder, Washington law provides immunity from criminal drug possession charges for anyone seeking medical aid for themselves or someone else experiencing an overdose.

How the SBA Helps Veterans

Three Business Resources for Veterans

May is Military Appreciation Month. Each year, the SBA serves over 200,000 veterans, service-disabled veterans and military spouses across the United States and at military installations around the globe.

To veterans: You served our country, now let the SBA serve you. The following are three ways the SBA serves veterans:

1. Boots to Business is a two-step entrepreneurial program offered by the SBA on military installations around the world as a training track of the Department of Defense (DOD) Transition Assistance Program (TAP).

2. Boots to Business: Reboot extends the entrepreneurship training offered in TAP on military installations to veterans of all eras and their spouses.

3. Veteran Business Outreach Center (VBOC) provides entrepreneurial development services such as business training, counseling and mentoring for eligible veterans owning or considering starting a small business.

The Seattle Police Department’s Strategies for the Future

Plan Overview
The Seattle Police Department has achieved remarkable progress in the eyes of our federal and local government officials, the people of Seattle, and the women and men of the Department. This work began when Mayor Murray took office, and during the past two years has been guided by SPD’s four pillars of policing – Enhance Public Trust, Build Pride and Professionalism, Address Crime and Disorder, and Promote Best Business Practices.

These four principles form the foundation of the Department’s priorities for the next two years, and beyond, outlined in this strategic plan. These objectives are the result of the combined efforts of SPD leadership to develop long term goals to support the delivery of police services in a manner that reflects the values, needs, and expectations of entire City of Seattle.Public trust remains paramount, both in terms of achieving complete compliance with the settlement agreement and maintaining a singular focus on community engagement. As we look toward the next two years, the institutionalization of new modes and measures of supervision and oversight, allow the Department to refocus its efforts on the responsibilities of every day policing – answering calls for assistance.
