Featuring four panelists currently engaged in this work, the discussion will focus on their shared front line experiences that correlate to the Public Safety Strategy Workgroup’s focus areas of 1) first responders and behavioral health partner collaboration; 2) ensuring equity in all aspects of deflection/diversion, including treatment; and 3) authentic law enforcement engagement with program partners and stakeholders, as well as with the community they serve.
