? ? ? ? ? ? ?戌时火树银花夜、狗岁丰衣足食人。转眼间来到戊戌正月,又是一年一度的新英格兰地区华人品牌活动——“新英格兰华人专业人士春节联欢暨社区论坛”与波城的新老朋友相逢的时分了。本次活动由17个华人专业社团联合主办,近千名新英格兰地区专业人士不畏严寒,於2月24日来到牛顿万豪酒店参与本次盛会。
? ? ? ? ? ? ?在美中医学交流协会会长孔学君医生召集下,倍投方案图片顿地区的临床医生们中午之前就陆续到达,聚集在Salon G欢聚一堂召开了别开生面的临床常见病研讨会,从心血管疾病到骨质疏松的临床诊治及新药介绍,还为下午的肝炎肝硬化讲座组织讨论。医生们也藉此机会互相交流临床心得。
? ? ? ? ? ? 下午一时,以“东西方融合”为主题的2018科技创新与医学健康论坛准时召开。本次论坛由美中医学交流协会主席、哈佛医学院以色列医院内科医生,麻省总医院Martinos 中心Synapse自闭症项目主任孔学君医师主持,并且有各医疗与创新领域的顶尖专家——哈佛医学院教授,附属以色列医院肝病中心主任Zezam Afdhal精彩讲演慢性肝炎及其合并症肝硬化及肝性脑病,深入浅出,深受好评;哈佛医学院麻省总院疼痛转化医学研究中心主任茅建人医师从中西医结合角度讲述了疼痛治疗新进展,听众们都感到受益匪浅,State Street的副主席兼高级量化分析师张云鹏博士,Rethink Robotics公司产品经理潘轶超先生等与大家分享了科技、创新与医疗行业的最新动态。论坛还特别邀请了纽约中国总领事馆科技参赞邢继俊博士为大家解读时下最热的话题——“一带一路”倡议,以及先前卷入FBI歧视执法事件的天普大学郗小星教授和大家分享如何在东西方融合过程中面对种族歧视问题。会议的最後,来自倍投方案图片顿华人摄影协会的摄影专家陆得礼与来宾分享了协会於去年举办的《麻州的一天》摄影项目中的作品,让大家在欣赏的同时体会“生活中处处皆是美”的主旨。论坛座无虚席,气氛热烈。
? ? ? ? ? ?随後,美中医学交流学会宣传部长牛江河博士还主持了“有奖猜谜”活动。 120条红红的谜语,内容涵盖了动物、人物、数字、文字、天文、地理等,包罗万象。有趣的谜语和诱人的奖品吸引得大人与小孩纷纷对着谜语绞着脑汁,解出谜底和获得奖品时的笑声也此起彼伏。
? ? ? ? ? ? 晚上六时许,活动进入了当天的最高潮——春节联欢晚会。晚会的表演可谓是百花齐放,精彩纷呈:有时尚动感的嘻哈劲舞,有充满西班牙浪漫气息的Flamenco,有融油画、对唱、茶道、古筝为一体的《菊花三弄》,有逗趣的脱口秀节目《幸福哪里找》……最後活动在联合主办方、17位协会主席的配乐诗朗诵《使者的歌》中完美谢幕。观众一边享受各式美食,一边欣赏精彩的晚会节目,各界精英人士欢聚一堂,其乐融融。
? ? ? ? ? ? 在传承往届“促进新英格兰地区华人交流”主题的基础上,本届“新英格兰华人专业人士春节联欢暨社区论坛”的高光点在於强调了慈善、爱心和作为职业人的社会责任,回馈社会。? ? ? ? ? ? ? 在纽约中国总领事馆科技参赞邢继俊博士新春致辞及哈佛教授李克强主题讲演後,活动共同主席之一的孔学君医生指出在过去的几年里我们一直支持美国癌症协会研究项目,而今年我们要为麻省总院自闭症研究募捐,让我们的医学科学家尽快攻克自闭症这一世纪之谜,造福千千万万自闭症患儿及他们的家庭。根据CDC统计,自闭症的发病率已经达到了1/68之高, 单美国目前就有超过二百万的自闭症患者。自闭症已成为严重的公共卫生问题,对其的关注刻不容缓。本次活动为了推动对自闭症群体的关怀,呼吁社会各界一同关爱这群来自星星的儿童。
? ? ? ? ? ? 美国参议员候选人Beth Lindstrom是中国社区的老朋友,在她的新年致辞特别用中文给大家拜年,还分享了自己养育自闭症儿子的经验之谈,她的儿子Cameron患有自闭症,如今是一名研究生,他也应邀上台给大家拜年。晚会特别邀请了倍投方案图片顿数学天才王睿萌和台湾钢琴公主刘梦缘两位自闭症大学生表演者为观众献上了精彩的演唱,王睿萌还把自己的画带到台上展示,晚会总指挥杨雨晴女士特别介绍了他们的成长故事,并为星星的孩子作诗,对唱,两位自闭症儿童的母亲——美国参议院议员候选人Beth Lindstrom和美中医学交流协会会长孔学君医生也以个人名义向麻省总医院自闭症研究各自捐出了一千元美金的善款。我们20位小天使盛装前往50多桌位卖花募捐。或许是被自闭症表演者们的动人歌声打动,亦或是被小天使们的爱心和真诚所感染,在场的观众纷纷在小天使们手中接过玫瑰,为自闭症儿童献上一份爱心。 “2018新英格兰华人专业人士春节联欢暨社区论坛”结束了,但是作为新英格兰职业人对自闭症儿童的爱心还没结束。如果您也想呵护这群来自星星的孩子、支持自闭症研究,请扫描下方二维码,为自闭症儿童们献上一份爱心。(牛江河提供)

MAYOR WALSH BREAKS GROUND ON REDEVELOPMENT OF BOSTON HOUSING AUTHORITY'S WHITTIER STREET PUBLIC HOUSING DEVELOPMENT

MAYOR WALSH BREAKS GROUND ON REDEVELOPMENT OF BOSTON HOUSING AUTHORITY'S WHITTIER STREET PUBLIC HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
HUD Choice Neighborhood Grant to bring community investment to Lower Roxbury

BOSTON - Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh today broke ground on phase one of a comprehensive redevelopment of the Whittier Street public housing development in Roxbury that was first built in 1953. The project will rebuild and preserve 200 existing public housing apartments by replacing them on- and off-site with an expanded program of 509 units of mixed-income rental housing and 14,225 square feet of commercial space.?
?
"As we shape Boston's growth, we must make sure our progress benefits everyone, especially long-term residents of the City," said Mayor Walsh. "I'm incredibly proud of the dedication of our partners who have come together to create a brighter future for the residents of Whittier Street and the surrounding neighborhood."
?
The redevelopment is made possible by a $30 million federal Choice Neighborhoods Initiative grant to the Boston Housing Authority and City of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development that will leverage an additional $260 million in private and public funds for commercial and residential development and public facilities in the Whittier neighborhood.
?
Demolition of 68 apartments will start at the back of the Whittier Street property to make way for 168 new apartments, both on-site and off-site. Phase 1A will create 92 mixed-income apartments in three new structures on site that will include a management office, a community room, and outdoor recreational space. Phase 1B will create 76 additional new mixed-income apartments on parcels nearby in Madison Park Village. The new phase one units will be completed by summer 2019. The entire Whittier redevelopment will be completed by 2021.
?
"This grant helps us to continue our commitment of providing healthy, safe, and accessible affordable housing to the residents that live within the Whittier corridor," said BHA Administrator Bill McGonagle. "Every family in public housing deserves access, opportunity and the chance to strive for excellence. We believe this grant allows for these things to take place."

"I've lived in this development since 1964, and it is an honor that we were chosen for redevelopment," said resident, and Task Force President, Stephanie Thomas. "These changes will definitely be an adjustment, but I am looking forward to new beginnings."

Residents who need to relocate temporarily may move to other BHA public housing or may opt to accept mobile Housing Choice Vouchers. All original Whittier public housing residents will be offered the opportunity to return to the transformed Whittier community when construction is complete.
Madison Melnea Cass Apartments consists of a new 4-story, 16 unit building at 40 Raynor Circle and a new a 5-story, 60 unit building at Melnea Cass Boulevard and Brook Marshall Road, an addition of 53 new mixed income rental homes for low and moderate income families. ?

"This housing is part of the first phase of an ambitious Whittier Housing Neighborhood Transformation Plan," said Madison Park Development Corporation's Chief Executive Officer Jeanne Pinado. "It will provide new homes for a broad range of low and moderate income families and create a new edge to Melnea Cass Boulevard, making it safer and more pedestrian-friendly."

The?Whittier Street housing development?is part of the larger neighborhood of Roxbury, with an area of roughly one square mile and 2,418 households. Built in 1953, Whittier Street is over 60 years old, and the HUD Choice Neighborhood grant will allow the property to be updated to fit with the current mixed-use neighborhood.

HUD created the?Choice Neighborhoods Initiative?to transform neighborhoods and link housing improvements with appropriate services, schools, public assets, transportation and access to jobs. In 2011, Boston was one of just five cities nationwide to receive one of the first-ever HUD Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Implementation grants. ?The Whittier Street grant marks Boston's second Choice Neighborhoods grant.

The?Whittier Choice?partnership is led by the Boston Housing Authority, the City of Boston, the Whittier Street Tenant Task Force, Preservation of Affordable Housing, Madison Park Development Corporation, and Economic Mobility Pathways (EMPath). The grant incorporates strategies for Neighborhood, Housing and People as a way to provide a coordinated transformation for the community in and around the original housing development footprint.
  • The Neighborhood Strategy seeks to break down barriers that isolate residents, to promote physical and social connections, and to link the neighborhood to the regional economy. There is a priority focus on improving public safety and creating safer, livelier streets, including a vibrant pedestrian corridor along Ruggles Street.
  • The Housing Strategy aims to preserve affordability while creating a better balance of housing options in the neighborhood. This plan creates a livable site with outdoor play spaces, a mix of building types to accommodate diverse family needs, and new through-streets to re-integrate the site into the broader neighborhood.
  • The People Strategy addresses a range of priority needs: ?income and asset building, health, education and youth development. ?At the center, EMPath will provide case management through its intensive Mobility Mentoring? model. Boston Housing Authority (BHA), in partnership with EMPath and Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, the City's Promise Neighborhood grantee, as well as service providers, relocation counselors, property management staff, and resident leaders will connect residents to existing services and newly leveraged programs.

AG’S OFFICE JOINS SCIENTISTS, FISHING FAMILIES, AND ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATES IN OPPOSING ATLANTIC DRILLING PLAN

AG’S OFFICE JOINS SCIENTISTS, FISHING FAMILIES, AND ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATES IN OPPOSING ATLANTIC DRILLING PLAN
Following Florida Exemption, Delivers Letter Addressed to Secretary Zinke Pledging to Fight Plan to Open up Areas off the Massachusetts Coast to Oil and Gas Drilling

BOSTON?— Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s Office today joined scientists, environmental advocates, fishing families, and elected officials from across the state in calling on the Trump Administration to end its reckless plan to open up nearly all offshore areas – including the entire Massachusetts coast – to oil and gas drilling.

A rally was held prior to a public meeting in Boston with the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) on the administration’s proposed offshore oil and gas drilling expansion plan. At the rally, AG Healey’s Energy and Environment Bureau Chief Melissa Hoffer highlighted the devastation that the proposal could bring to the state’s $7.3 billion fishing industry – the third largest in the country – and its 1,500 miles of coastline that is marked by destination beaches in areas like Cape Cod, Cape Ann and Plum Island.

“This reckless and arbitrary plan threatens to destroy our multi-billion-dollar fishing and tourism industries and our vibrant?marine and coastal ecosystems,” said AG Healey. “We will continue to stand with the thousands of fishing families and businesses up and down the Atlantic coast and here in Massachusetts in fighting to protect our coastline.”

AG Healey’s Office presented BOEM staff today with a?letter?to U.S. Department of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that once again states the office’s strong opposition to the agency’s effort to create a new five-year national offshore oil and gas leasing program that could open up all currently restricted offshore areas to drilling, including Atlantic waters off the Massachusetts coast.

AG Healey first announced her opposition to the plan in?an August 2017 letter?to BOEM with the support of the Northeast Seafood Coalition and the Massachusetts Lobstermen’s Association.

Earlier this month, AG Healey joined a coalition of 12 attorneys general in sending aletter to Secretary Zinke?highlighting their united effort to stop the plan that threatens more than three million jobs across the country. AG Healey’s Office also joined with five other attorneys general in sending a letter to the Department in?late January?raising strong concerns with its plan to roll back regulations designed to reduce environmental and safety risks associated with offshore drilling following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.

More than 41,000 businesses and 500,000 commercial fishing families along the Atlantic coast oppose offshore oil and gas drilling because of the harm it poses to the coastal ecosystems and economies.

Opening up any currently restricted offshore areas in the Atlantic to drilling will also harm the state’s protected endangered species, including the North Atlantic Right Whale, which feeds in the waters off of Cape Cod and Nantucket, according to the AG’s Office. There are fewer than 450 of these critically endangered whales remaining in existence.

AG Healey has also called attention to the massive and long-lasting economic harm the Deepwater Horizon oil spill caused to Gulf Coast state economies, arguing that it illustrates how an oil spill off the Massachusetts coast will devastate the state’s ocean economy.

The plan will also increase harmful greenhouse gas emissions at a time when Massachusetts’ coastal communities are already investing significant resources to adapt to rising tides and storm surges—running directly counter to state policies that have made Massachusetts a national leader in addressing climate change.

??????????? Opponents of the Trump Administration’s plan have also raised concerns with the public review and comment process surrounding the Department of Interior’s proposal. Less than a week after its release and outside of the decision-making process required by federal law,?Secretary Zinke announced on Twitter?that he was “taking Florida off the table for offshore oil and gas.” AG Healey’s Office and the coalition of attorneys general opposing the proposal?argue?that the Florida exemption is arbitrary and inexplicable and shows utter disregard for other states and the opposing views of thousands of local businesses, families and stakeholder groups along the Atlantic coast.?

Nonprofit, Community, and Business Leaders Celebrate Local Unsung Heroes at Fourth Annual Light of Dawnn Awards Ceremony

Nonprofit,?Community,?and Business Leaders Celebrate Local Unsung Heroes at Fourth Annual Light of Dawnn Awards Ceremony
Mayor Martin J. Walsh Joins to Honor Nonprofit Workers and High School Students for Their Remarkable Contributions to Their Communities


BOSTON, MA (February 27, 2018)?-?Nonprofit, government, community, and business leaders, along with the Jaffier Family, came together at the West End House Boys and Girls Club for the fourth annual Light of Dawnn Awards Ceremony to honor the life of Dawnn Jaffier. During the ceremony, three nonprofit workers and three high school seniors were recognized for their outstanding work and commitment to serving their communities.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined the ceremony and made remarks on the legacy of Dawnn Jaffier and the accomplishments of the Light of?Dawnn?Award winners.

"There is no better way to honor the life of Dawnn Jaffier than to celebrate those who have continued to carry on her legacy through acts of goodwill and service to our local communities," said Mayor Walsh. "Dawnn and her spirit will not be forgotten, and I congratulate this year's award winners who make a difference throughout our city. Thank you for making the City of Boston proud."

The Light of?Dawnn?Awards?were?created to honor the memory of Dawnn Jaffier, who in 2014 was tragically killed at just 26 years old. While just a young woman, Dawnn had already made a significant impact in her community through her work with the West End House Boys and Girls Club, Playworks, City Year, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston. Upon Dawnn's untimely passing, her family, friends, and colleagues came together to create the Light of Dawnn Awards so that her legacy may continue to inspire. Each year, three individuals who represent?Dawnn's?spirit are selected to receive a Light of?Dawnn?Award and a $5,000 prize. The Awards are presented by the Highland Street Foundation and managed by the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network.

This year's recipients are Khara Burns, FoodSource Hotline Director of Project Bread; Mao Kang, Streetworker at UTEC, Inc.; and Shalaun Brown, Operations Manager at Codman Academy Public Charter School.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker lauded the award winners for their invaluable contributions to the Commonwealth's nonprofit sector and commitment to strengthening their communities.

"Congratulations to this year's Light of Dawnn Award recipients Khara, Mao and Shalaun for their work carrying on Dawnn's legacy of serving the community and giving back to others," said Governor Baker in a statement. "As we remember Dawnn, we must all strive to follow her outstanding example and engage in acts of kindness to support others in our local communities."

"Khara, Mao, and Shalaun quietly go about their work every day, not in pursuit of recognition, but purely driven by a desire to make a difference in someone's life," said Blake Jordan, Executive Director of the Highland Street Foundation. "It is an honor to shine a light on them and a privilege to do so in the name of Dawnn Jaffier."

"It is our honor to remember Dawnn and her memory by recognizing this year's impressive Light of Dawnn Awards recipients," said Jim Ayres, chair of the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network's board of directors. "The heart and dedication that Khara, Mao, and Shalaun bring to their work remind us of Dawnn and her legacy of service, building relationships, strengthening support, and providing opportunities for others. They are outstanding examples of the thousands of nonprofit professionals working to make Massachusetts a better place for all to live."

Also during the ceremony, three high school seniors were awarded the Light of Dawnn Scholarships for their community work. Now in their second year, these scholarships were created by John Hancock, where?Dawnn's?mother is a longtime employee, in partnership with the Foundation to be Named Later. The scholarships award $5,000 to each student to go towards pursuing a college education.

This year's scholarship recipients are Bilguissa Barry, Kaylene Sheran, and Wooddynne Dejeanlouis.

"It is an honor to celebrate the life and legacy of Dawnn Jaffier by once again joining her family and civic partners to pay tribute to leaders who are serving their communities," said Tom?Crohan of John Hancock. "We are especially proud to recognize Bilguissa, Wooddynne?and?Kaylene and hope this award helps make their journey just a little bit easier."

以下驻倍投方案图片顿台北经济文化办事处的相关介绍:
台湾四面环海,渔业资源丰富,养殖与渔捞技术均享誉全球,我国水产品加工业者运用丰富的渔业资源,因应市场需求不断精进加工技术,然竞争国家挟关税贸易优惠、低廉人力成本及政府出口补助等优势挑战我国水产品於国际间竞争力,为寻求产业出路,多年来冷冻水产公会组团率领会员参加国际间重要食品及水产品展,为我国水产品争取国际商机,更为台湾整体渔业产业链永续经营奠定重要的基础。
北美最大海产品展—Seafood Expo North America 於去年(2017)招揽来自53 个国家1,343 家参展厂商,使用253,460 平方英尺的摊位,吸引超过22,000 位海产专业人士参展,该展媒合参展厂商与来自北美当地大盘、中盘、零售、进出口贸易的食品服务与零售业者,使厂商直接与关键买主接触,得以轻易打入北美海产市场。2017 年台湾水产出口值约有18 亿8726 万美元,其中北美占了10%(约19,174.9 万美元),是台湾第四大出口市场(仅次於日本、泰国及中国大陆),且出口值年年稳定成长,2016 2017 年约有13%的成长幅度,产品则以台湾鲷为最大宗。
冷冻水产公会为协助会员掌握商机,每年皆组团参与此国际盛会,会员参展意愿极高,每年展览结束即抢先预定明年展位,以确保参展机会。今年总计有17 个展位(1,700 平方英尺)、13 家厂商一同参展,包括兰扬、文鯕、竹门、锦元益、允伟、富发、新和兴、嘉丰、海之宝、源进、青叶、冠民、咏玺等公司,多数参展会员每年均固定参与盛会。另今年报名观展会员计有晏林、钰赞、嘉楠、品元、达洲、力佳绿能、佢懋等7 家厂商前往观摩。
为建立台湾优质渔产品品牌及国际形象与知名度,并开拓海外市场,冷冻水产公会一改二十多年之布置设计,以台湾外销大宗鱼种搭配台湾各地名胜,主打「来自台湾」之意象,预计将带给台湾馆新的风采,并将最新鲜美味、符合HACCP 之台湾优质渔产品介绍给北美展参展来宾,陈列展品包括冷冻台湾鲷、冷冻虱目鱼、冷冻秋刀鱼、冷冻石斑鱼、冷冻鱿鱼、冷冻鲔鱼类、冷冻剑旗鱼、冷冻鲨、冷冻鬼头刀、冷冻鲈鱼、冷冻鲭鱼、冷冻油鱼、飞鱼卵系列、调理沙拉、调理章鱼、调理虾制品等,也有厂商现场提供产品试吃活动。台湾区冷冻水产工业同业公会(TFSIA)成立於1976 年,秉持协调同业关系,增进共同利益,谋划冷冻水产加工业的升级,促进国家经济发展,致力各项会务推广,会员涵盖台湾区冷冻水产加工厂及从事冷冻水产贸易商,现任理事长为兰扬食品股份有限公司董事长陆根田先生,目前计有会员厂102 家,冷冻水产贸易商48 家,合计有150家会员,所属会员加工厂多具备优良之生产技术、严格之品质与卫生安全管理,并积极申请EUHACCPASCMSCISO 22000HALAL等认证,以提供全球优质、安全的水产品。
公会自2016 年着手整建网站,并自去年(2017)起於参展活动广宣网路平台,目前已获得相当成效,将收到之讯息发布予会员,会员即可透过网站得知台湾政府相关单位新政策、公会公告、展览资讯、教育训练资讯、商机媒合、问卷调查、社会救助等讯息,得以迅速掌握产业发展方向。且英文版内容已经上线,该网站将作为一商机媒合平台,供国外客户直接在网站上搜寻目标厂商并获取厂商联络资讯。公会亦积极担任产官之间桥梁,反映会员心声,同时承接政府单位相关计画案并与国内学术单位合作,期以产、官、学三方面合力带动水产业均衡发展。

BOSTON MAN CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO STATE PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY SELLING AND POSSESSING FIREARMS

BOSTON MAN CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO STATE PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY SELLING AND POSSESSING FIREARMS

BOSTON??A Boston man has been convicted by a jury and sentenced to three to four years in state prison in connection with illegally selling and possessing firearms, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
Canez Tout-Puissant, 42, of Boston, was convicted Thursday after a two-day jury trial in Suffolk Superior Court on the charges of Possession of a Rifle (one count) Possession of a Firearm (one count) and Possession of Ammunition (two counts). He later pleaded guilty to being an armed career criminal and was sentenced by Judge Jeffrey Locke to three to four years in state prison.
The charges stem from a long-running investigation by?the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)?into Tout-Puissant for selling illegal firearms. The investigation revealed that Tout-Puissant illegally sold a rifle, a pistol and ammunition to an undercover police officer in a car in Mattapan.
AG Healey is committed to putting an end to irresponsible and illegal gun use and sales in Massachusetts and is working with partners in law enforcement to get guns out of the hands of dangerous people.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Cesar Vega and Jessica Frattaroli, both of AG Healey’s Criminal Bureau. The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Boston Police and Brockton Police.

Baker-Polito Administration and Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office Announce Treatment and Diversion Partnership Pilot for Low Level Substance Misuse Offenses

Baker-Polito Administration and Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office Announce Treatment and Diversion Partnership Pilot for Low Level Substance Misuse Offenses

QUINCY –?The Baker-Polito Administration and Executive Office of Public Safety today announced an award of $99,000 and a partnership with the Norfolk County District Attorney’s office to pilot an innovative new approach to tackle the heroin and opioid epidemic plaguing Massachusetts cities and towns. The “Buyer Diversion Treatment Alternative” (BDTA) program is designed to divert lower level offenders arrested for purchasing narcotics from a dealer under law enforcement surveillance away from the criminal justice system and into treatment and recovery options. In September the administration announced a similar partnership with the City of Worcester Police Department and the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office.

“Our Administration continues to pursue prevention, treatment and recovery programming for Massachusetts families and local law enforcement facing the opioid and heroin epidemic,”?said Governor Charlie Baker.?“We look forward to partnering with our colleagues in Norfolk County to support individuals struggling with substance misuse by diverting them into programs that reduce the barriers to conquering addiction.”

“The severe nature of the opioid crisis challenges us all to develop different and innovative approaches to law enforcement and substance misuse issues,”?said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito.?“Offering individuals suffering from addiction an alternative path to treatment and recovery will help empower them to change their own lives as the criminal justice system focuses on more serious crimes in our communities.”

“Each day they’re on patrol, police officers see firsthand the destruction wrought by the opioid crisis,”?said Secretary of Public Safety and Security Dan Bennett.?“This program is unique because it gives the police a mechanism to redirect drug buyers toward treatment so that they can break the cycle of addiction.”??

Eligibility for the BDTA program will be based on individuals meeting certain criteria as determined by the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office in conjunction with local police departments.?

The funds will allow the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office to engage a Licensed Clinician from Bay State Community Services who will provide clinical assessments, personalized treatment plans and intensive wrap around services for the program participants and funds for a part time Program Coordinator to manage the daily operations and communication flow between Bay State Community Services; the Braintree, Randolph, Quincy and Weymouth Police Departments, and the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office.

“We have been assembling programs to counter the opiate addiction epidemic. We think that this will help get people dealing with substance abuse disorder into treatment and out of the courts – hopefully for good,”?said Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey.?“Without treatment, we will continue to see the same people in our justice system again and again. The administration is partnering with us to try something different. I believe it will help.”

“Bay State Community Services (BSCS) is honored to partner with the Norfolk DA Buyer Diversion Treatment Alternative Program,”?said Dr. Daurice Cox, Chief Executive Officer, Bay State Community Services. “This innovative and responsive program allows officers in Braintree, Quincy, Randolph and Weymouth to immediately access treatment for individuals struggling with substance use disorders. The BSCS clinical team will provide intensive wrap-around services to support these individuals, throughout their recovery process.”
