Under the guidance of BJA, Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative partners and subject-matter experts from across the country supported development of a new resource: Call to Action and Issue Brief: Justice System Use of Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs—Addressing the Nation's Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse Epidemic. Focusing on states' prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs)—an extremely useful but often underutilized tool—this resource offers justice practitioners and policymakers valuable, practical, hands-on sections such as the PDMP best-practices checklist, a compendium of resources and references (including BJA's Law Enforcement Naloxone Toolkit), and next steps to help them address this critical public safety and public health challenge.
