ADDRESSING THE OPIOID CRISIS
Code 3 has become increasingly focused on educating local police about the scope of the problem, equipping them with the resources
they need to identify and target illegal prescrib-ers, and empowering officers and communities with the life-saving resources they need to help their neighbors before it is too late.
The opioid epidemic has taken the lives of far too many Americans, and communities are grappling with how to effectively fight back.
A major part of this initiative has been a partnership with the Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative – also known as RALI. Together with RALI and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, we created the RALI CARES educational program. The program consists of a mobile unit that is outfitted on the inside to look like a teenager or young adult’s bedroom but is filled with hidden warning signs of substance misuse.
In our experience as police officers, we responded to many overdose calls. We learned that most parents don’t know what to look for when it comes to substance misuse happening in their own homes. Signs that were clear to us were not recognized by families. We were compelled to take action.
Today, we have two mobile units that have traveled all over the country educating communities about how to help protect their families. Due to safety concerns around
COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended
in-person tours of the RALI CARES program. As an alternative, we are offering virtual tours of the trailer online. Please click the link below to access an interactive tour of the program and learn the warning signs of substance misuse.
