64 seek help for addictions from angel in St. Tammany Parish

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Over the past few months, 64 people have walked into a police station in St. Tammany Parish to seek help for an drug addiction -- and received it. They have done so under a new program called "Operation Angel," which aims to treat drug addiction as a disease instead of a crime.

Launched on the North Shore on May 2, the program lets addicts seek help from police and turn in their drugs without fear of arrest. It was developed about a year ago by the Police Department in Gloucester, Mass., and is now being used by more than 100 law enforcement agencies in 23 states. The agencies in St. Tammany are the first in Louisiana to participate.

A fundraiser was scheduled Wednesday night (Sept. 14) at Dakota Restaurant, 629 U.S. 190, Covington, to raise money for the local Operation Angel effort.  There is no cost for admission to the event.

"When we brought the 64 people to the mission, they didn't ask for a penny," Lentz said. "I think it is only proper that we try to raise some money for them so they can keep doing the great work that they have been doing. They are saving lives."
