[ARCHIVED] Heroin In DuPage County Presentation Jan. 22

Village of Westmont
Published: January 7, 2014

On Wednesday, January 22, 2014, the Westmont Police Department in collaboration with Community Unit School District 201 and Maercker School District 60 will be hosting “Heroin - The Suburban Secret.” This educational opportunity will discuss the growing concern that DuPage County currently faces and the ill effects heroin has on an individual, family and community.

According to the County Coroner’s Office, 46 people lost their life to heroin in DuPage County last year.

Guest speakers will include DuPage County States Attorney Robert Berlin, DuPage County Coroner Dr. Richard Jorgensen, and others as we look to offer real life insight to battle this deadly problem. Organizations such as The Robert Crown Center, Rosecrance, Abraxas, and the LTM Foundation will also be on hand to distribute information.

The event will take place in the auditorium of the Westmont High School, 909 Oakwood Dr. at 7:00 P.M. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Detective Michael Weibler at or 630-981-6373.
