Arlington County Public Safety Response to the Opioid Crisis
Arlington County (Virginia) leaders provide an overview of Operation Safe Station. It is a multidisciplinary effort designed to reduce the dangerous impacts of opioids and other drugs in the community and promote treatment options. The County Office of the Commonwealth Attorney, the police department, the sheriff's office, and the department of human services have collaborated to develop a process by which individuals who seek help with their drug use can self-report and receive services without fear of prosecution and incarceration.
This community-driven program saves lives every day by addressing the opioid crisis with significant issues affecting residents of all demographics.
