EGG HARBOR CITY, N.J. -

A local sheriff's office is stepping out into the community to help fight the opioid epidemic.

On Wednesday, September 12th, the Atlantic County Sheriff's Office's Hope One Mobile Response Unit stopped by Egg Harbor City to offer services and resources to members of the community who may be struggling with drug addiction.

The Hope One Mobile Unit also offered free Narcan kits and training on how to use them.
