SPD's role in heroin crisis featured in recent Frontline report

Frontline's recent report, "Chasing Heroin", includes a section on Seattle's Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program.

By diverting eligible individuals to services, LEAD improves public safety and reduces criminal behaviors of people who participate in the program.
