Media Availability to Follow

GLOUCESTER — Police Chief Leonard Campanello and John Rosenthal, co-founders of The Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) will gather Friday morning for a round-table meeting convened by Representative Ann-Margaret Ferrante, bringing together elected officials and healthcare leaders from across the state.

P.A.A.R.I. is a new nonprofit organization, the culmination of a partnership among national leaders of business, healthcare, public sector, and education, who met shortly after the City of Gloucester and Chief Campanello announced the Gloucester ANGEL Initiative, aimed at turning police officers into caregivers in the battle against the disease of drug addiction.

The group will meet with Chief Campanello and Rosenthal to learn more about the organization and to discuss ways to possibly work together.
