(WASHINGTON, DC)- At the invitation of U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), chairman of the Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller will serve as a witness in a hearing titled “Defeating Fentanyl: Addressing the Deadliest Drugs Fueling the Opioid Crisis”.
The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, April 11, at 2:30 p.m. in the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC.
The focus of Sen. Graham’s hearing will be to examine the deadly effects of fentanyl, which is one hundred times more powerful than morphine and has played an outsized role in the opioid epidemic.
Chief Miller will read from prepared remarks and answer questions regarding law enforcement’s role in responding to the ongoing national crisis. Additionally, he is expected to offer insights to include leveraging multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional partnerships for future prevention, intervention, and enforcement services in order to stem the supply and demand for these lethal drugs.
