On March 14, 2019, members of “Leadership Morris”, a community education program run by the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, attended an educational program covering the National Heroin and Opioid Epidemic hosted by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.
Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp provided welcoming remarks and an explanation of the structure and duties of the office. Approximately thirty local community leaders in the 2019 “Leadership Morris” program attended. Chief Assistant Prosecutor Brad Seabury presented the “Opiates 101” educational program. This presentation concerns the impact of this Epidemic and the multi-faceted efforts the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office has taken. A question and answer session was held following the presentation.
Prosecutor Knapp said, “Leadership Morris is an exceptional program, with an active network of over 500 of Morris County’s best leaders. It is important to continue educating members of our community on the dangers of the Heroin and Opioid Epidemic. The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office will continue to work closely with our community partners to create an informed and safe Morris County. I would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for inviting us to participate”.
