Supporting effective local, state, and tribal responses to illicit substance use and misuse in order to reduce overdose deaths, promote public safety, and support access to treatment and recovery services in the criminal justice system.
The National Violence Against Women Law Enforcement Training and Technical Assistance Consortium (LETTAC) launched on October 1 and is committed to helping law enforcement officials respond to, investigate, and prosecute Violence Against Women Act crimes (including domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and trafficking in tribal communities) in ways that hold offenders accountable and promote healing, safety, and justice for victims and survivors. The center point for LETTAC is its Resource Center, located at www.LETTAC.org.
The New Castle County Division of Police's Behavioral Health Unit, a FY2019 COSSAP grantee, aims to expand first responder deflection models that connect individuals to substance use and mental health treatment and recovery support services through outreach to the community. In addition to law enforcement, their team includes mental health professionals, case managers, licensed clinicians, registered nurses, and child advocates. Learn more: https://herohelpbhu.com/
