ODMAP Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program
ODMAP is a simple, web-based mapping tool that allows public safety and public health organizations to report and track suspected drug overdose events in near real time so that responses to sudden increases or spikes in overdose events can be mobilized. ODMAP is a free public service from the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area.
Beginning soon, drug overdose data from nearly all Kentucky emergency medical service providers will automatically be integrated into ODMAP. Kentucky law enforcement officers can also elect to add data through KY OPS, Kentucky’s repository for traffic collision, crime, and citation reports.
This tool is available only to government (state, local, federal, or tribal) agencies serving the interests of public safety and health. To request access, visit http://www.ODMAP.org/AgencyAccess/RequestForm.
To find out which agencies in your area are participating, please use the "Request more info here" button below.
ODMAP is most effective when implemented countywide in a coordinated way. A good place to begin the process of implementation is with your local health department or active anti-drug coalitions. For more detailed information about ODMAP, including an overview video and documentation, please visit www.ODMAP.org.
