Binghamton University Police are starting to carry Narcan.

The drug is an antidote for people who have over-dosed on heroin.

University Police Chief Timothy Faughnan said B.U. has not received any reports of heroin overdoses on campus, but said it's a precautionary measure.

Officers finished their Narcan training last week.
