Kenosha, WI (WLIP)–The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department released information about the latest drug bust in the county earlier this week.
And while breaking up drug operations is more and more frequent thanks to the continued work by law enforcement the overdose epidemic shows no signs of slowing.
Kenosha County Sheriff David Zoerner told WLIP’s Happenings Q and A that it takes a multi-faceted approach to fight the problem.
Sheriff Zoerner emphasized that more help is available than ever when it comes to the availability of overdose reversing drugs and counseling possibilities.
Sheriff Zoerner says one of the under-reported effects of the problem is that law enforcement officers who themselves face health adversities when coming in contact with drugs such as fentanyl.
Sheriff Zoerner says he is looking to invest in equipment that can detect the presence of deadly drugs before an officer may come in contact with them.
