Does the Met equip police officers with Naloxone? If so, when did this start, how many officers, and how many times has it been used? If not, are there any plans to equip officers with Naloxone and if so, when?

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) does not equip its officers with Naloxone.

The MPS Central Drugs Team have been engaging with partners to identify potential benefits to public safety of officers carrying Naloxone.

Further evidence will need to be gathered and reviewed before the MPS considers its deployment to frontline officers.
