Apply Now to Join Law Enforcement and Homelessness Community of Practice

October 13, 2020

The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and the National Police Foundation (NPF) are hosting a three-session, virtual Community of Practice focused on how data can inform police-mental health collaboration (PMHC) strategies for addressing the needs of people experiencing homelessness. The Community of Practice will be led by law enforcement data expert and former police chief, Dr. Frank Straub, and will also feature presentations from peer jurisdictions. Participants will have opportunities for mutual learning and dialogue and will collaborate with CSG Justice Center and NPF staff in the development of a data dashboard, which will allow PMHCs to collect and analyze data to guide and evaluate their efforts.

Upon completion, participants will also have several strategies they can use in their own communities to guide data collection and analysis efforts, with the ultimate goals of improving housing and mental health outcomes and reducing the number of people coming into contact with the justice system.

These three sessions are funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.
