Responding to Homelessness: Effective Strategies for Law Enforcement and Community Partners
- Hosted By:
- The Council of State Governments
This event will explore practical strategies communities across the US are implementing to build and strengthen Police-Mental Health Collaborations to respond to homelessness. The event will feature a live demonstration of the newly revamped Bureau of Justice Assistance Police-Mental Health Collaboration Toolkit, which includes several new modules specifically focused on responding to homelessness.
It will also feature keynote remarks from top federal agency leaders, people with lived experience with homelessness and the justice system, and a panel of practitioners from Sarasota, Florida, and Wichita, Kansas, who will share their experiences using collaborative, cross-system approaches to address homelessness in their communities. Finally, the event will conclude with an invitation to continue the conversation by joining a new virtual discussion forum for law enforcement practitioners and partners.
