Safety Line is crisis response system that meets people with knowledge of the hundreds of resources available in Saint Louis and is trained in crisis management. It connects folks with services that best fits their individual needs. This allows an optimum resolution during an emergency. Police only have two resources-incarceration or hospitalization. My team would be equipped with competence, compassion, and linked to resources. Police will not be part of Safety Line, providing an alternative channel for folks in need of help. I have been researching and working on the background of Safety Line for years. I am connected to organizations and community members who are asking for this nonconfrontational form of help.
