Members of the Newport Police Department will participate in an open discussion with residents about opioid abuse and addiction in the community.
“The opioid crisis is a nationwide epidemic that has affected all kinds of communities, including ours,” Chief DiSanto said. “We’re committed to addressing this issue in close cooperation with residents and community organizations, and I invite anyone who would like to participate in this dialogue to join us.”
