Epidemic Meets Pandemic #3: The Law Enforcement Perspective

This limited series will investigate how the nation’s opioid epidemic has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of this series, we will hear from a harm reductionist, an addiction medicine physician, a Denver Police narcotics sergeant and two people currently in recovery. 

Unfortunately, the opioid epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic are likely not going anywhere soon. Emergency Medical Minute remains committed to providing education to help combat these health crises. 

In this episode, we speak with Lex Jorge — a Denver Police Narcotics Sergeant — to gain insight into how drug trafficking has been impacted by COVID. We also discuss law enforcement’s role in the recovery process and touch on social issues currently afflicting the country.
