Sheriff new 2016lr 1Welcome to the Hennepin County Sheriff Foundation!

Opioid related deaths have risen to a crisis level in Hennepin County.  Each and every overdose death is tragic and each one is preventable.
In 2017, we will employ all means and measures to reduce the number of overdose deaths in Hennepin County.  We will engage our federal, state and local law enforcement partners as well as parent/school organizations, advocacy groups, recovery centers, civic groups, local businesses and individuals to work to create a coalition to fight this public safety crisis.  We need your help and your support of the Foundation directly impacts our ability to bring awareness and education to help decrease the number of opioid related deaths in Hennepin County.
