SAC Pasterchick and Mrs. Frances Miceli

SAC Pasterchick delivered the keynote speech to over five hundred (500) attendees who consisted of prevention specialists, treatment providers, education officials, faith worshipping groups, and law enforcement. SAC Pasterchick spoke in regards to an alarming drug issue in New Jersey, stating, "The problem I'm referring to is the growing use of heroin among our youth and citizens, and the spread of this terrible drug that enslaves all of our neighborhoods. Not only do I believe it is our biggest enforcement challenges, but I believe it is our biggest health threat."

 

Soon after the keynote speech, SAC Pasterchick spoke in memory of SAC Anthony D. Cammarato, "On January 08, 2003, after a battle with cancer we at the DEA, New Jersey lost a true leader. SAC Cammarato lived for the job and committed every resource in fighting for a cause that he truly believed in. That's why it is very important to continue his commitment in drug law enforcement, to include our education and prevention programs.
