St. Pete Police Changes Information Session
Recently, the St. Petersburg Police Department announced that it would work with Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services to roll out the new Community Assistance and Life Liaison Program to address certain nonviolent matters. In short, the new program will start as a pilot that will integrate clinical staff and community navigators into police responses for calls related to matters such as intoxication, drug overdose, mental health crisis, suicide intervention, truancy, homeless complaints, and neighborhood disputes. This new approach is being rolled out as a pilot program over the next several months and ultimately lead to navigator units that are not accompanied by police officers.
Please join us on Wednesday, February 17 at 5PM for a meeting to discuss these recent changes and what apartment communities can expect when calls for police assistance are made. The conversation will feature Megan McGee, Police Special Projects Manager from the St. Petersburg Police Department and Terri Balliet, Chief Operating Officer of Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services. In the meantime, please visit Gulf Coast's Community Assistance and Life Liaison Program page for more information.
