Leading the Charge: Everything I Know Now, I Wish I Knew Then in Public Safety

Publication Date: 6/26/2024

Join us for a webinar where law enforcement professionals from the Overdose Response Strategy (ORS) share their experiences while supporting locally based overdose fatality review (OFR) initiatives and their transition to ORS. The ORS helps jurisdictions reduce overdoses by partnering with public health and public safety agencies, sharing information and pertinent intelligence, and supporting innovative and evidence-based strategies. This peer-to-peer conversation will highlight the realities faced by OFRs and existing resources to help navigate the complexities of implementation and expansion from a public safety perspective.
