Ask an Officer

Question: Will I be arrested if I call the police and report that someone is overdosing on drugs? Answer: No, the “Good Samaritan Law” protects individuals from prosecution of criminal offenses involving the possession of controlled substances and/or drug paraphernalia. You should never be afraid of criminal prosecution when helping yourself or someone else that is overdosing. Also, we want to remind you that the Versailles Police Department has an established “Angel Program” offering assistance in getting individuals who are addicted to drugs help in seeking treatment. Those wanting to get off drugs are encouraged to come to the police department and get help. You will not be arrested if you come in and voluntarily turn in any illegal drugs or drug-related items. Source: KRS 218A.133 – Exemption from prosecution for possession of controlled substance or drug paraphernalia if seeking assistance with drug overdose. Please send questions you’d like to ask the police department to john@woodfordsun.com.
