Statement of Lawrence Police Chief James Fitzpatrick


LAWRENCE — Chief James Fitzpatrick issues the following statement:
“The Lawrence Police Department is an extremely dedicated law enforcement and public safety agency. The drug and opioid epidemic affects every city and town in this country. Here in Lawrence, we work closely — and have worked closely for decades — with our law enforcement partners in major cities across New England, including Boston and Manchester, N.H., to aggressively enforce the drug laws and stem the flow of drugs into communities. This is a national epidemic that requires teamwork and partnership across borders and among municipal, state and federal agencies.”
