Fighting Fentanyl Playlist | New episodes added each Tuesday and Thursday
Through a seven-episode series released on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week, fentanyl expert S/Sgt. Conor King and Cst. Matt Rutherford act as your guides as VicPD’s Strike Force and Crime Reduction Unit, the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team (GVERT), our Analysis and Intelligence Unit, Patrol, K9 and other resources track a known fentanyl dealer through the Quadra Village neighbourhood. The series takes viewers along on surveillance, though GVERT operations, into our drug-processing areas, and intelligence briefings.
“There were over 900 overdose deaths in BC in 2016, and fentanyl was part of many of these,” S/Sgt. Conor King said. “This series shows you how we’re focused on fentanyl; how we’re focused on getting these deadly drugs off our streets.”
The series runs over seven episodes, released twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, by being added to our Fighting Fentanyl playlist on VicPD’s Youtube channel. Each episode will also be posted on the VicPD website, linked to through our Twitter account and posted on our Facebook pages. The series runs from August 29 th to September 19 th .
