An East Liverpool police officer will be attending tomorrow’s State of the Union Address with Congressman Bill Johnson.

Six-year veteran and East Liverpool patrolman and K-9 officer Chris Green, has  been given the opportunity to share his ideas and experience with some of the most prominent leaders in the country.

In 2017 Green was involved in a nearly fatal incident. He was in the midst of a drug arrest and was exposed to fentanyl.

He credits a fellow police officer for injecting him with the first dose of naloxone and rushing him to the hospital.

Green says a big goal of his is to talk to lawmakers and see what help local communities can get when it comes to combating the drug epidemic.
