Detective John Ioia from the New Jersey State Police Gang Unit will speak at CASA for Children’s annual Winter Forum from 9:30 a.m. to noon Jan. 26 at the Atlantic County Library in Egg Harbor Township.

The free event, which is open to the public, will feature a presentation by Ioia that details the use and affects of street drugs and gang activity in our community.

In addition to Ioia, residential counselors from the John Brooks Recovery Center in Atlantic City will discuss treatment options for people battling drug abuse. Anyone interested in attending should call CASA for Children at 609-601-7800 or email to register. For more information about CASA, see
