Hope Not Handcuffs is a collaborative effort between Tri-County Community Partnership, law enforcement and other organizations to help those addicted to opiates and other substances. If a person comes to a designated police department seeking help, our team will work to get them into treatment as soon as possible. To make this program a success, we need over 50 “Angel” volunteers. Angels help with paperwork and provide compassionate support until a treatment option is found. Angel's can choose their own time slot by signing up to be on call for just 1 six-hour block per month, or whenever you like!

It is our goal to have Angels arrive at a participating police department within 30 minutes of call.

Now searching for Angels in the areas of : Rockland County

Participating Police Departments: Village of Piermont Police  and Clarkstown

Coming Soon: Orangetown Police Department


         OCTOBER 5, 2019
     Time: 9am sign-in and refreshments; 9:30 training begins promptly & ends by 11:30pm

There will be a $10.00 registration fee collected at sign-in to cover the cost of the Angel T-shirt you will receive after the training. The Angel T-Shirt is required to be worn when representing the program.
