Safe Passage is a program that allows addicts to come to the Police Station, at any time to get the help that they need. The program’s coordinator is Denise Evans and she discussed what Safe Passage is and how the program got started.
Judge Brad Paisley began this program in Christian County. He did so after he realized that there has to be more than to just putting these people who struggle with addiction in handcuffs. Evans went on to discuss what he wanted to accomplish by starting this program and how he went about introducing Safe Passage to the area.
Every single addict that walks through the door at Safe Passage looking for help goes through the same process. Evans discussed that process and how they go about helping them.
Evans appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
