New Orleans To Launch New Initiatives To Fight Opioids

New England Towns Struggle With Opioid And Heroin Epidemic

The district attorney for New Orleans is launching two new initiatives to reduce opioid-related deaths.

Leon Cannizzaro's plan, which was approved by the City Council last week, proposes a mapping program that allows police to track overdose cases in real time.

Cannizzaro also announced that the city granted his office $357,000 to bring in additional resources to fatal overdose investigations.

According to officials, the two-year grant will support a coroner's office investigator, an assistant district attorney and a case advocate.
