Law Enforcement Grants
Purdue Pharma sponsors the NADDI Law Enforcement Grant program to help address prescription drug diversion and to put more resources in the hands of law enforcement to help combat prescription drug abuse and diversion. The LE Grant Program is designed to recognize law enforcement agencies that have achieved excellence in the investigation of pharmaceutical diversion. This may be for a particular event, or for an overall program of enforcement or prevention programs, or a combination of both. The maximum amount of this grant is $10,000.
