Multiple In-Custody Apparent Overdoses in Jail, Local Agencies Respond Quickly

MEDFORD, Ore. - Two Jackson County Jail Adults-In-Custody (AIC) are in a local hospital today after an apparent overdose. At 11:25 this morning, a Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) Corrections deputy was nearby when an AIC began suffering from an apparent medical emergency. The deputy responded with Jail medical to begin treatment and a second AIC also began exhibiting signs of an apparent overdose.


Multiple agencies responded to assist including Medford Police Department (MPD), Medford Fire, JCSO Corrections and Patrol deputies, and Mercy Flights ambulances. In total, five doses of Narcan was administered between the two patients and they were both responsive as they were transported to a local hospital. At this time, the patients’ condition is unknown.


JCSO and MPD are conducting a joint-agency investigation to determine the source of the contraband. No further information is available at this time.
