“BPAIR”…..BETHLEHEM POLICE ASSISTING IN RECOVERY
In 2017, The Bethlehem Police Department and the Bethlehem Health Bureau initiated a drug recovery program entitled “Bethlehem Police Assisting in Recovery Program” (BPAIR). Since then, the program has spread to three other law enforcement agencies in Northampton County; Bangor, Colonial Regional and Easton Police.
The BPAIR program allows an individual struggling with a drug addiction to walk into the Bethlehem Police Department and ask for assistance. If the person requesting help has drugs and/or drug paraphernalia on them, they simply turn it into the Police. No charges will be filed against them. It’s simple. We want to help you on the road to recovery.
The Police Department, working with the Bethlehem Health Bureau and the Northampton County Heroin and Opioid Task Force, will then arrange for a professional intake assessor to complete a drug and alcohol intake assessment and assist in finding a treatment facility. The program is available 7 days a week, 9:00 am to midnight.
The Bethlehem Police Department is located at 10 E. Church Street, Bethlehem Pa. 18018. Simply walk in and ask for the Desk Sergeant and we will help you.
If you need help with your addiction problem, make Bethlehem Police and the BPAIR program your first step on your road to Recovery.
For more Information, Contact the Bethlehem Police Desk Sergeant at 610-865-7179 or the Bethlehem Service Center at 610-865-7000.
