Get the facts on fentanyl at an upcoming police presentation

Fentanyl has been making headlines for the past year and many Calgarians have questions about the drug. To help answer some of the questions, the Calgary Police Service is hosting a free presentation for the public next week.

The presentation will talk about current drug trends that police are seeing in Calgary, including the rise of fentanyl. Participants will also get credible information about the risks of this new drug and how they can know if someone is using it.

“It is very important that people have good information on the risks associated with different drugs so they can make informed decisions,” says Sergeant Andrew Critchley, with the Calgary Police Service’s Crime Prevention Team. “This presentation will provide good information for parents, community leaders or anyone who is curious about fentanyl and wants credible information about it.”

The presentation will be at Police Headquarters (5111 47 Street N.E.) on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Space is limited, so interested citizens are asked to reserve a seat by calling 403-428-8399 or emailing
