Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal this week kicked off a new social media campaign highlighting the scope of Bergen County's heroin epidemic.

The campaign will bring attention to lifesaving work being done by law enforcement officers to save victims of drug overdoses.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office will be providing periodic updates regarding fatal drug overdoses in Bergen County, as well as updates detailing those lives saved by County law enforcement through administering Narcan, the overdose reversal drug.

“These visual graphics are intended to provide a daily reminder of how real and pervasive the problem is in this county and to encourage all of us to do our part to prevent the next overdose,” Grewal said.

“By sharing this information, we hope that parents, educators, and others can use it to have difficult conversations and to do more.”
