View Article

Kane County Sheriff Ron Hain plans to start a pilot program in which detainees addicted to opioids get medically assisted treatment as they go through withdrawal while in county jail custody. He also told the Kane County Board Monday that he has provided Narcan to correctional officers and has reinstated strip searches of new jail inmates after a shakedown last month turned up nearly 20 bags of heroin.
