Franklin Lakes Drug "Amnesty" Policy

From the Police Department

The Franklin Lakes Chief of Police has issued the following Drug Amnesty Policy: "Individuals who advise the Franklin Lakes Police Department that they are addicted to opioids and need help will not be charged with a crime or prosecuted, but will, instead, be referred to appropriate drug counseling and addiction recovery services. If such opioid-dependent individuals are referred to us by parents, children, spouses, guardians or siblings, they will be treated in the same manner as if those individuals had themselves provided the advice to us."
