Campus police at University at Albany will soon be carrying Naloxone.

The drug has proven highly effective in reversing the effects of a heroin overdose.

The state attorney general's office is supplying the drug to 12 SUNY campuses through the Community Overdose Prevention Program.

That program uses money seized from drug dealers to reimburse local police for the cost of the Naloxone.
