Senator Chuck Schumer at the Sheriff's Office

NY Senator Chuck Schumer held a press conference today at 3 County Center. He was joined by Sheriff Langley, County Executive Odell, Captains and members of the Department. The Senator was there to launch an initiative regarding an upcoming anti-opioids package. The new P.O.W.E.R. (Providing Officers with Electronic Resources) Act grant program will help local police pay for high tech chemical detection tools that will sniff out illegal drugs such as fentanyl. According to drug enforcement experts, it only takes a grain of fentanyl to cause a deadly reaction. Afterwards Sheriff was interviewed by WAMC Northeast Public Radio Allison Dunne about The need for financial assistance from the federal government to fund law enforcement with the Opioid crisis. We need to end this epidemic as one death is one too many. Thank you to the Senator for looking to arm our officers with the latest and greatest. @chuckschumer #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #opioidepidemic #POWER
