We need to think outside of the box to serve those citizens that require treatment over incarceration.Through all the networking opportunities provided by Ammon Labs (PTACC), I have decided to push forward with programming to reach out to our citizens affected by addiction. We are currently training officers on how to deal specifically with individuals seeking assistance in entering rehabilitation facilities. The goal is to have officers available at the Cranford Police Department 24/7/365 equipped with the training, knowledge, and resources to immediately start the rehabilitation process.
