 HILLVIEW - Mayor Jim Eadens knows first-hand the effects of drug use in the community.

Members of the Bullitt Opioid Addiction Team (BOAT) and the Kentucky Harm Reduction Coalition also know the first-hand dangers.

Together, they have made it possible for the Hillview Police Department to be more effective in their fight, allowing trained officers to carry and implement a product that combats drug overdoses prior to EMS arrival.
