His police career started over twenty years ago. His jurisdictions included sea (a stint with New Hampshire's Marine Patrol assigned him to Rockingham County and the Seacoast), land (hundreds of thousands of miles of road patrol), and air (licensed with the Federal Aviation Administration as a commercial sUAS pilot). His resume includes TASER instructor, ASP instructor, Field Training Officer, Drug Recognition Expert, DARE Instructor, Central New Hampshire Special Operations Unit Operator/ Grenadier, and School Resource Officer, among other duties. He has worked at the Lincoln (NH) Police Department for over fifteen years, and has held the rank of patrol sergeant for the past nine. An amateur musician, Sgt. DeLuca looks forward to the New Hampshire Highland Games, hosted at Loon Mountain in Lincoln. He plays the bagpipes with the New Hampshire Police Association Pipes & Drums and the Pipes & Drums of NHSCOT.


    Abstract

    The opioid crisis erupted from a tragic convergence of factors from the private and public sectors. Changing sensibilities on opioid use and abuse, perspectives on addiction and recovery, better chemistry and more diligent regulation offers some avenues forward.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Brief history of opioids

    2. The impact of opioid addiction not just on users but on families, communities, and society
