I continue to be impressed with our City and the actions of our police department.
As stated in the Mayor’s State of the City Address: “Our Police and Health Departments responded to the increase in overdoses by creating the BPAIR program, in which a drug addicted person, can call or show up to the police department, and request assistance in finding treatment, with no criminal consequences.”
Not only did they institute the program, but they are getting the word out!
One thought on “Really good police work!”
I agree. The flawed criminal justice system is a serious problem for society, but while things like this don’t solve the larger problem, they at least reduce the harm to vulnerable people.
