Alternatives to the Police : A Conversation with Community Leaders and Service Providers

Tuesday January 17, 6:00-7:30PM
West Penn Hospital School of Nursing, 4900 Friendship Avenue

Join Bloomfield Development Corporation, elected officials and various service providers to discuss the options that people have instead of calling the police while dealing with mental health crises, addiction issues, etc. Calling the police is not always the best option and can put the caller and other people at risk of police violence.

This even will feature a panel and opportunities for attendees to ask questions. Space will be held until 8:00pm for reflection and for people to share their stories.

Panel members:
Office of Community Health and Safety
Resolve Crisis Network
City Councilwoman Deb Gross
County Councilwoman Liv Bennett
and more to be confirmed shortly!

We’ll be meeting in person, but also be live streaming on Facebook and taking questions in the comments.
