On September 28, 2017, the Police Institute at Rutgers University is excited to welcome Colonel Joseph R. Fuentes, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, and Shelly Lowe, Program Development Specialist for the New Jersey State Police, as our next Distinguished Lecturers. Colonel Fuentes and Ms. Lowe will lead a discussion titled “Opiate Crisis: Professional and Personal Experiences”.
This Distinguished Lecture Series event will speak to and answer questions about the opiate crisis in New Jersey with a focus on heroin. Colonel Fuentes will provide information on the role of the New Jersey State Police in this war on opioids, the path of heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl (IMF), and its impact on communities and law enforcement. Shelly Lowe will provide her personal perspective on “it’s not just a disease.” Shelly Lowe was born and raised in Lakehurst, New Jersey. She and her husband Adam raised three children: Adam Jr. (27), Amber (24) and Austin (22). Adam Jr.’s life ended November 28, 2016 by snorting heroin laced with fentanyl.
