All Dundee police officers are being taught how to administer medication to a person who has taken an overdose.
The training has been taking place over the last few months and comes after 40,000 Naloxone kits were distributed across the country.
The substance, also known as Narcan, is used to counter the effects of opiod overdose.
Constable Kim Adams from the Partnerships, Intervention and Prevention team who arranged the training, said: “Dundee officers have been receiving overdose and Naloxone awareness training from Kirsten Horsburgh, strategy co-ordinator (drug death prevention) from the Scottish Drugs Forum and local NHS partners.
“This has been used to promote overdose awareness amongst our staff as part of our focus on harm prevention.”
Increased awareness training for officers in Angus and Perth and Kinross is being planned.
