Webinar: Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program

The Bureau of Justice Assistance is hosting a no-cost informational webinar about the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP).

In 2017, the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA launched a free, user-friendly, mobile-capable tool known as ODMAP to track the location of suspected fatal and nonfatal overdoses and the administration of naloxone by first responders.  ODMAP links first responders and relevant record management systems (RMS) to a mapping tool to track suspected overdoses across jurisdictions and support efforts to mobilize an immediate response to a sudden increase or spike in overdose events.  An Application Programming Interface method allows an agency or state’s RMS to share data with ODMAP without creating additional reporting.

Date: May 24, 2019

Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., ET

2019 National Drug Control Strategy: Performance Reporting System

The 2019 National Drug Control Strategy presents a clear and concise plan for substantially reducing the impact of the opioid crisis on the lives of Americans. The strategy also addresses the reemerging threat posed by cocaine and the growing threat of synthetic drugs. The strategy provides the nation with policies to address source-country drug production with international partners, interdict drugs on the high seas, stop their trafficking across U.S. borders, support domestic law enforcement in disrupting and dismantling drug trafficking organizations, prevent drug use, and treat those with substance use disorders and help them to maintain long-term recovery.

The Performance Reporting System (PRS) describes the National Drug Control Strategy’s two-year and five-year performance measures and targets for each strategy goal and objective established for reducing drug use, availability, and the consequences of drug use.
