Child Development ‐ Community Policing (CD-CP)
Following the model created at the Yale Child Study Center, CD-CP addresses trauma at its inception. Law enforcement-clinical teams intervene with children exposed to violence and trauma to prevent the many difficulties that can result from such experiences.
Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT)
A pre-booking jail diversion program, CIT is a community-based collaboration between law enforcement, mental health agencies, consumers and family members, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)-Charlotte, and Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC).
Jail Diversion (Recovery Solutions)
Nationally, a large majority of individuals in the justice system have mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders, and the same is true locally. For years, the Mecklenburg County has taken the lead collaborating to promote recovery for this population by collaborating with the court system, Public Defenders’ Office, District Attorney's Office and Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement, Community Corrections and the Department of Juvenile Justice. The Recovery Solutions Collaborative meets monthly to identify gaps and address service needs.
Operation Recovery (Jail Diversion Trauma Recovery Priority to Veterans) is a SAMHSA funded initiative in 13 states. This program supports local implementation and statewide expansion of trauma integrated jail diversion programs to reach the growing number of individuals with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and trauma related disorders involved in the justice system with a priority for veterans.
