THE PEOPLE'S PLAN
Reimagining policing & Public safety on long island
In collaboration with Long Island United to Transform Policing & Community Safety, we have drafted policy recommendations to re-imagine the Crisis Response System on Long Island.
Our four-part proposal addresses the need for:
Comprehensive 911 Dispatch protocol & training
An alternative to the traditional reliance on law enforcement for behavioral health crisis response
Bolstering community-based treatment as alternatives to emergency departments
Highlighting the importance of data collection and transparency
This Multi-tiered, Criteria-based Dispatch Protocol is our person-centered approach to noncriminal crises. It outlines a structure that upholds all individuals' health and safety at the emergency site by creating a system where the scene is comprehensively assessed & professionals with the appropriate skill are dispatched to the scene.
