The Office of Genesee County Sheriff Robert J. Pickell collaborated with Genesee County Commissioner Joseph Graves to provide a community response to the recent heroin overdose deaths in Genesee County. In February 2011, there were three overdose deaths within a one week span. The collaborative team contacted community members, family members of the victims, and school officials to discuss the program "Chasing the Dragon". The phrase "Chasing the Dragon" means to continually seek the next best high.
