Michael Sauschuck is the former Portland Police Chief, current Assistant City Manager (and nominee for Maine’s Commissioner of Public Safety). Speaking at the Portland Regional Chamber Kegs n Issues event in a talk I grabbed live on my phone, he walked through policing and substance use disorder recovery. Policing approaches to low level drug users have changed, and for the better – this is a very good review of how and why.
Also covered is the Thrive2027 collaborative organized by United Way. Get involved here.
