Monroe County's Heroin Task Force Releases Overdose Death Numbers

Monroe County's Heroin Task Force says there were seven overdose deaths in the county last month -- the smallest monthly number all year. 

The total number of overdose cases for August was 92 -- a four month low. Sheriff Todd Baxter calls the numbers encouraging but says it's too soon to declare victory. 

The report shows 58 of the 92 overdoses occurred in the City of Rochester. Most of the towns had at least one. Gates had 4 and Greece had 9.
