Cops on the Hill: Stories from the month of October 2021

International:  I managed four (4) solid events during my five weeks of holidays.

I had a  meeting in Germany with the now retired federal officer who was the liaison between Germany and the USA law enforcement the past four years.

I spent the whole day with Dr Bürki, co-creator of the 1994-2021 Heroin Assisted Treatment in Switzerland.  He invited me accompany him to the “Top of Europe” and walk across the glacier there.  The good Doctor is still actively treating patients and his new information and insights were / will be helpful.

I had a working, two-hour lunch with a representative of the Swiss Health Ministry en français in Bern.  My usual contact was out on sick leave.  Lucien was very enthusiastic to see more changes in the Swiss approach to illegal drugs. We discussed all the changes and updates to their HAT program (heroin assisted treatment).

Always bring the cowboy hat:   In October, out of the blue, I had a request from LEAP Germany to go to Frankfurt for a day and a half of video interviews with a professional documentarian.  He is putting together vignettes of the interviews for use in LEAP’s public awareness campaign…Klaus said the American cowboy and cop combo will do well with a German audience…here is a snippet (in English)..1 minute .. Who is Howard?
