Burlington Police will get help from AmeriCorps in fighting the opioid addiction problem. Through a grant adminstered by the Gloucester-based Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative, the department recently welcomed Margie Taylor, a full-time program coordinator, and Jackie Tayabji, a part-time recovery coach, to assist with outreach, support, and treatment referrals. The initiative provides resources to help law enforcement agencies combat the opioid epidemic.
