Chelsea Police Model HUB – talk with Marla Bellamy

IMG_9580
How do we build safer communities and make sure no one is left behind? There is an innovative police model out there that does exactly this. The Chelsea, Mass. Police Model uses community resources to work with families and individuals that are facing difficult challenges and may need services from more than one community agency. The goal is to work together to ensure families and individuals are safe, healthy and have the opportunity to thrive. This model, called The Hub, reduces demands that are currently borne by the criminal justice system, health system, and families by more effectively applying the capacities of our human service partners and our police resources and mitigating those critical upstream risk factors that lead to harm, crime, and/or death.
We have the local expert on this model in our next Indivisible HOPE meeting:
Marla Davis Bellamy
Marla is the director of Philadelphia CeaseFire and the director of Civic Engagement at the Center for Bioethics, Urban Health and Policy at the Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
Marla will be talking with our host, Josh Camson, Esq. on this unique model that could bring peace and justice to our communities.
