Fentanyl/Carfentanil: Officer Safety Warning (July 2017)
In the last year, UK Emergency Services have seen a dramatic increase in the availability of dangerous synthetic opioids. The majority of these are structural derivatives of the synthetic drug “Fentanyl.” Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid currently listed as a controlled drug that mimics the effects of morphine in the human body, but has a potency 50–100 times that of morphine. Due to the availability of Fentanyl, both international and domestic criminal organisations are increasingly utilising this as an adulterant in heroin and other controlled substances. The presence of these synthetic opioids in the illicit drug market is extremely concerning and has led to a significant increase in overdose incidents and overdose related deaths throughout the nation.

Update 12th January 2018
There has been intelligence from the police (1 piece not corroborated) that there may be Fentanyl being cut in to heroin in Surrey.
Obviously everyone is aware of the national picture surrounding Fentanyl and the deaths caused by this, but this is the first time there has been mention of this in Surrey.
Please note that there is still no confirmed seizures, no incidents and as stated this current intelligence is not confirmed.
The police have also asked that if anyone has any intelligence at all regarding Fentanyl or the analogues in Surrey that they submit an intelligence report through to us as a matter of urgency. Please contact 0808 802 5000 and the information will be passed on.
Full induction training is provided free to all our volunteers as the role they take is the most important work of our charity in the community. Our next training programme is scheduled to begin on Saturday 9th September 2017 and end on Saturday 16th June 2018 for 6 Saturdays 10am - 4pm at a venue in Guildford. Help with travel expenses, free parking and lunch are provided.
