Arlington Police Chief and Police Council Chairman Fred Ryan represented P.A.A.R.I. in Washington earlier this month, where he spoke before 80 lawmakers and Capitol Hill staffers about the enhanced role police have taken in directing people into recovery.

At the forum, which was hosted by Boston University, Chief Ryan spoke about the evolution of his personal thinking on the role of law enforcement in the war on drugs and discussed the new ways police departments are approaching the opioid crisis nationwide.
