The new head of the Manchester Police Department is calling on lawmakers to step up when it comes to combating New Hampshire’s heroin epidemic.
Chief Nick Willard says law enforcement is doing everything it can.
“We’ve already seized 27,000 grams of heroin year to date. And that is an extraordinary number. Over $300,000 seized in cash associated with those drug seizures.”
But Willard, who took over as chief just last week, says arrests only go so far. He says what’s really needed is more treatment.
