Our distinguished list of presenters during the 2015 Annual Membership Meeting & Safety Awards Ceremony included Eryck Kratville, Esq., the Unit Chief of the Heroin Interdiction Team of the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor for New York City.  As with all of our other presenters, Mr. Kratville’s topic of discussion was specifically chosen in response to requests from our member companies.

Mr. Kratville was on hand to address the growing problem of heroin use, addiction and overdoses, especially among Americans 18 to 25 years old.  Of particular interest to the maritime industry, he also discussed heroin trafficking routes as well as methods of concealment.  Now Mr. Kratville has generously offered to share with all of the AMS member companies his presentation, “Heroin Rising:  the Resurgence of Heroin and Opiate Abuse,” which can be found here.
AMS would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to Mr. Kratville, the rest of our esteemed presenters, and each one of our attendees.  Once again this year the AMS Membership Meeting & Safety Awards Ceremony was an engaging event, highlighted by time spent in the company of so many of our maritime colleagues.
