Nashville, North Carolina Police Chief Tom Bashore, who was recognized just last week at P.A.A.R.I’s third anniversary celebration, is featured in the first part of a series from VOA News on the opioid crisis.
The Nashville Police Department’s recovery program is patterned after the Gloucester ANGEL program that launched this movement toward treatment over arrest. Since launching their program, Chief Bashore and his officers have helped 391 people into treatment and recovery.
Chief Bashore was presented a P.A.A.R.I. Law Enforcement Leadership award last week.
