WEST ORANGE, NJ — West Orange Police Chief James Abbott recently spoke at a luncheon about the township’s own pre-arrest diversion program, Operation HOPE. Ammon Labs, in collaboration with Police, Treatment and Community Collaborative, sponsored the luncheon on “Pre-Arrest Diversion Programs for Law Enforcement and Addiction Treatment Executives.” More than 150 people were in attendance.

Operation HOPE is a voluntary program dedicated to reducing the impact of heroin, opiate and all drug and alcohol abuse on the community by encouraging those who suffer from addiction to seek treatment. For more information, visit or visit the West Orange Police Department, 60 Main St.
