Many Voices, Many Visions "Gates to Recovery/Van White "Heroes"
September 10, 2017 —
Opioid abuse has reached epidemic levels in our community. The Gates Police Department has been vocal in its fight against drug abuse, particularly as it pertains to heroin. Chief James Vanbrederode joins us to talk about what his department is doing and how it’s partnering with other community agencies to curb the epidemic and treat those who are still in heroin’s grasp. Plus, say the word “hero” and you might think of Superman or Wonder Woman or maybe a police officer or someone in the military or perhaps it’s someone you love. In any case, local Rochester City School Board President Van White's new book, titled “Heroes”, encourages readers to consider the every day, ordinary heroes around us and not just the ones you find in a book or on a screen.
