Fighting Back Against Heroin

August 31 was International Overdose Awareness Day. While an overdose can occur as a result of nearly any narcotic, opioids like heroin are the leading cause of drug related deaths in McHenry County. Detective Pishotta discusses this issue further in this edition of Huntley Safety 1st.

Huntley Safety 1st is the monthly education series written by the staff of the Huntley Police Department.  On the first of each month, we provide citizens with information on a different public safety related issue.
