Policemen Offer Treatment to Addicted Prisoners


When Vernon police Chief James Kenny saw how police in neighbouring Manchester were offering treatment rather than arresting people who possessed small quantities of opiates, he was intrigued. As a veteran cop with experience in narcotics enforcement, Kenny kept seeing addicted prisoners get arrested but not getting the help they need. Kenny knew the old model of simply arresting anyone who possessed drugs was not working, a realization that police departments across Connecticut and the nation are coming to as addiction deaths continue to grow.  The law enforcement agencies have started with what can be a new approach towards dealing with the OPIOID Crisis in America by starting a HOPE program.  The key to the program, and those like it, is an immediate help for people suffering from addiction. The first step to successfully getting substance users on the road to recovery is building trust. Cops need no reminder that this is a segment of the population traditionally averse to law enforcement, so initial efforts to help are likely to be met with resistance.

Police Chief Fred Ryan is the chair of Police assisted addiction and recovery initiative which is helping control the opioid crisis has taken lessons and implemented the model to the patients being affected by the opioid crisis in the state. Police chief Fred stated that they are not looking to make an arrest and are trying to help citizens recover from their addiction that has lead to the OPIOID crisis. Though there is a relaxation for people who want to get out of the addiction there are those specific people who are into the business of selling OPIOID and are interested in maximizing its reach to the people that are out of this vicious cycle of the OPIOID crisis.
