Attorney General Josh Shapiro spoke at the Pennsylvania Police Chief Association Conference.

He told officers his top priority is fighting the heroin and opioid epidemic. He said, last year it took the lives of over 4,600 people in the commonwealth. That represents 13 Pennsylvanians a day that are dying as a result of heroin and opioids.

At the Pennsylvania Police Chief Association Conference, Shapiro laid out his case for fighting the issue, saying it cannot be done alone.

The attorney general and police chiefs also discussed issues like scams against seniors and child safety.
