CIVILIAN RESPONSE TEAMS - Megan McGee, Assistant Director, Administrative Services Bureau St. Petersburg Police Department and Meghan Harrigan, Senior Director of Behavioral Health, Gulf Coast JFCS

A significant portion of 911 and non-emergency calls are related to quality-of-life and other low-priority incidents that may require a time-sensitive response but are better suited to civilian responders, rather than armed police officers. Some calls may not require a time-sensitive response at all. This break-out session will feature two such programs, the Community Assistance and Life Liaison program, a partnership between St. Petersburg Police Department and Gulf Coast JFCS and the Quick Response Team, (QRT), partnership between Gulf Coast JFCS and several law enforcement agencies within Pinellas County.

ODMAP: LEVERAGING REAL-TIME DATA TO DRIVE REAL-TIME OVERDOSE RESPONSE STRATEGIES - Ali Burrell, ODMAP Program Manager, Washington/Baltimore HIDTA

 The Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) provides near real-time overdose surveillance data across jurisdictions to support public safety and public health efforts to mobilize an immediate response to an overdose spike. Developed and managed by the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (W/B HIDTA), ODMAP links first responders on scene to a mapping tool to track overdoses to stimulate a real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions. It is a mobile- friendly tool, capable of being used in the field on any mobile device or data terminal. ODMAP is available to state, local, federal, and tribal public safety and public health agencies, first responders, and hospitals with emergency departments.

The workshop will also provide historical context to the County’s opioid response efforts and the systemic challenges in achieving strategic objectives.

THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM: AN ANALYSIS OF POLICE SUICIDES - Lieutenant Charles Kenniff (ret.), Consultant, International Association of Chiefs of Police

This breakout session covers officer fatigue as, sadly, often a factor in police suicides. The presentation reviews 3 actual cases. Each an example of a different issue (criminal charges, long term marital issues, impulse response) all leading to their deaths. There is a lot of emphasis on "its okay if you are not okay" and ways to positively push back on stigma and get help. The speaker uses this to ensure that the officers understand that they are not immune from mental health issues and addictions just by virtue of their job.

AFTERNOON PLENARY, 3:45 P.M.-5:00 P.M.
