The Safe Passage Program is located in the Taylorville Police Department and according to Coordinator Denise Evans, they are busier than they ever have been.
Before the program was started, the only option a Judge had was to put an addict in jail or prison, according to Evans, but now they’re able to seek rehab through the Safe Passage Program.
The only way that Safe Passage is funded is through donations. They’ll be holding a Steak Dinner and Live Auction on October 15th at the VFW in Taylorville.
