October 21 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm
|Join the CSG Justice Center, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, and the University of Cincinnati for Taking The Call, a two-day national conference exploring innovative community responder models—including a session on peer specialists/peer support related to co-responder models,
Taking the Call will bring people together from across the U.S. to explore how jurisdictions are serving as laboratories for innovation to ensure that emergency calls receive the appropriate response. The conference will highlight the opportunities and challenges of these community responder models and discuss how the approach may improve community health, lessen the burden on law enforcement, and reduce unnecessary justice system contact.
The virtual conference is free and open to the public; pre-registration is required. The event live stream will also be accessible here and on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Viewers can join the conversation by following #JusticeBriefingLive.
