Many organizations and agencies in the field of public health have stated that policing is a public health issue (see the APHA policy statement, Addressing Law Enforcement Violence as a Public Health Issue), but how do we move beyond a declaration? Alternate public safety response programs exist, but how are they structured, how do they operate, and what is their impact? This training will provide public health practitioners with insights from three unarmed public safety models so that public health and public safety agencies, as well as governing bodies, may explore implementing similar programs.
Public health practitioners, particularly those working in governmental agencies, as well as those working in public safety and other cross-sectoral fields
- Explain the need for unarmed public safety response programs as an alternative to police response
- Describe models to design and implement an unarmed response program
- Consider how to measure impact and incorporate community feedback into continuous improvement efforts
