“The mission of a drug dealer is clear; get victims hooked, willingly provide the poison that kills addicts, shoot rival dealers down in the street, make money. They endanger our neighborhoods and frighten our residents. So far this year, our Department has been averaging about one overdose save per month.” Chief Moore
