MARGATE — Parents and caregivers of children of all ages are invited to a presentation addressing the state’s opioid crisis.

Retired Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Sean Clancy will address the epidemic and how it affects children Tuesday at the Tighe School. The event is open to all residents and is sponsored by the Margate Police Department and the Margate/Longport Municipal Alliance.

“It is our hope that parents will feel empowered with knowledge in awareness and prevention after this presentation,” said Veronica Valencia, Margate teacher and Municipal Alliance coordinator.

The presentation is intended to give parents awareness and tactics for prevention of opioid use.

According to his biography, Clancy spent 18 years as a detective in the Prosecutor’s Office, serving in various units and retiring as a captain and commander of the county SWAT team.

Clancy serves as an instructor for the New Jersey Chiefs of Police Command and Leadership Academy. He is also the owner of National CSI Camp LLC, and he volunteers his time to raise awareness on the opioid epidemic from a law-enforcement perspective.
