New Generation Policing ep. 2: Policing perspectives across the pond

Season 1, Ep. 9

Revolving Doors has been championing conversations around creating new and better ways of policing people who experience multiple disadvantage, and especially young adults. The first three episodes of this series look at the concept of pre-arrest diversion and its implications for people trapped in the revolving door of crisis and crime with the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) Bureau, pioneers of the first police-assisted diversion programme in the US. This second episode explores the benefits of using a harm-reduction and trauma-informed approach for people with unmet needs who commit low-level offences. With LEAD’s field expertise, we also learn about the process of developing cross-agency collaboration with the police, prosecutors, civil rights advocates and other key stakeholders.
