George Hackford, right, appears at a press conference Tuesday with Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello at police headquarters in Gloucester. Hackford was the "angel" assigned to help the first person who took up Campanello's offer of help, rather than arrest, any drug addict turning himself in. The addict, whose identity is being kept secret, sought help from the police at about 3 a.m. Tuesday, and Hackford was brought in.
