ABOUT US

In 2014, with over 20 years of law enforcement experience, Lou Fisher developed a revolutionary new way to reduce crime. By focusing on supporting people who are at "high risk" of overdose and or commit non-violent crime to support their habit, they were able to help and not incarcerate addicted individuals. This would significantly reduce the number of times law enforcement would have to deal with the same repeat offenders. 

 

Lou Fisher tasked the department to identify those "high risk" addicted individuals. They were brought in and given the opportunity to go into long term treatment followed by clean and sober living instead of incarceration. These people were interviewed, documented and consulted. Many times they provided information that helped arrest drug dealers. The result were overwhelming, a massive reduction in drug related death and crimes. This program became known as the Treatment Incentive Program, TIP for short.

OUR BEGINNINGS

The TIP program helped Riverside to reduce theft related crime by an average of 70% over the last 3 years. As a result, other municipalities affected by the opioid crisis were interested to learn more about the program. But most law enforcement agencies did not have the resources to manage the TIP program.  

Lou Fisher decided to create the NJTIP to support law enforcement agencies that are overwhelmed by the opioid addiction. NJTIP is a turnkey solution that provides all the resources needed to launch and managed the program.
