Putnam County Sheriff touts grant aimed at combating drug problems

New York Senator Chuck Schumer met with Putnam County Sheriff Robert Langley yesterday to launch an initiative tied to 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.  Langley says drug enforcement experts believe it only takes a grain of fentanyl to cause a deadly reaction.  Langley has advocated for financial assistance from the federal government to fund law enforcement response to the Opioid crisis.
