Operation Angel Announcement – May 2, 2016


District Attorney Warren Montgomery was among the public officials who stood with Covington Police Chief Tim Lentz Monday May 2, 2016 to support his announcement of Operation Angel, a new program that will enable addicts to seek help from law enforcement officers without the fear of arrest. An addict simply can appear at the police department, surrender any drugs or paraphernalia, and instead of being arrested, he or she will be brought to a Lacombe ranch that is operated by the New Orleans Mission, which provides round-the-clock treatment for people struggling with alcohol or drug addiction.
