JOLIET – Local cable viewers will have an opportunity to learn more about the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office this week when television host Richard Fredrickson broadcasts a recent interview he conducted with Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow.
The interview, filmed at Thayer’s 158 North Restaurant in downtown Joliet, will be shown on Joliet Community Television Channel 6, Comcast Channel 6 and AT&T Channel 99 throughout the week of Feb. 13. The shows will air Monday, Wednesday and Friday of that week at 10 a.m., noon and 6 p.m.
During the 30-minute interview, State’s Attorney Glasgow discusses a new law he drafted with House Minority Leader Tom Cross to ban the sale and possession of synthetic marijuana in Illinois.
The State’s Attorney also discusses initiatives to stop the growing number of fatal heroin overdoses in Will County. Glasgow recently obtained $200,000 in federal funding to grapple with heroin addictions through the highly successful Will County Drug Court program, and he has joined with other county leaders in creating HELPS (Heroin Education Leads to Preventative Solutions) to raise public awareness about the dangers of using heroin.
In addition, Glasgow discusses with Fredrickson a new law he drafted that raises penalties for the most violent domestic abusers.
The informative interview should give viewers valuable insight into the many facets of the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office.
