Resources for addicts

A group of Calhoun County law enforcement agencies and non-law enforcement partners are working together through the Battle Creek Police Department Fusion Center to try to better address drug use and overdoses.

The Fusion Center is an intelligence and resource center in which the BCPD works with other agencies, allowing all to better share information and act on issues more quickly.

As BCPD, other law-enforcement agencies and other community partners work together to address this difficult issue, please take a look at the resources below to understand more.
