Wanted to share several articles that discusses how law enforcement agencies are fighting the US opioid epidemic with the ArcGIS Platform. More specifically, they are using Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS to help monitor and track overdoses in real-time. This app enables you to monitor, track, and assess your daily operations.
