FLEMINGTON. N.J. — Ken Berkley and Scott Stewart of River's Edge Farm are executive producers of a new documentary with Harry & Snowman and Life In The Doghouse filmmaker, Ron Davis.
The film, To Serve & Protect, will chronicle a paradigm shift in efforts by law enforcement through the Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative (PAARI) to combat the national opioid epidemic in their local communities.
"We were inspired by what PAARI is doing so we decided that this program needed national attention," said Berkley. Filmmaker Ron Davis had just completed Life In The Doghouse, about equestrians Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta. "I was eager to sign on to this project," said Davis. "This film will be about a solution to the growing opioid epidemic."
Berkley, Stewart, and Davis intend to raise $1 million through tax-deductible donations to produce the film. "This is a crisis that has touched everyone in some way and incarceration is not working. Treatment is the only answer," said Stewart.
The producing team is hopeful that people will not only donate, but can interest friends, family and organizations to contribute.
