The Smithfield Police, in a cooperative effort with the Tri-County Southern Providence County Regional Prevention Coalition, are hosting a town hall meeting that addresses opioid addiction. There will be several different speakers covering various angles related to this topic. The purpose of this meeting is to inform residents that opioid addiction does impact the Smithfield community and that treatment is available for those in need.
A resource table with brochures and literature relative to the opioid crisis, as well as Deterra ® (at-home, medication disposal) bags, will be available. At the end of the presentation, there will be a question and answer period offered to attendees. Representatives from the police department, fire department, and event speakers will be available for any questions relative to opioid addiction and its impact.
This meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 30th, 2019, at 6:30 pm, in the Sgt. Norman G. Vezina Community & Training Room at Smithfield Police Department Headquarters, 215 Pleasant View Avenue. Seating for this event is limited. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. To register, email Captain Jason A. DiGrado at email@example.com.
