PPSC has recently launched a new pilot program with the City of Petaluma and Petaluma Police Department – SAFE (Specialized Assistance For Everyone). This program is a collaborative effort based on the CAHOOTS program deployed in Eugene, Oregon, which is the leading model for emergency crisis intervention and prevention. The goal of the SAFE team is to address crisis response, prevention and intervention for our most vulnerable community members experiencing mental health, substance abuse and homelessness. This team consists of civilian first responders, who respond to and proactively address calls for service that have traditionally (and unnecessarily) burdened law enforcement, emergency medical services and health care providers.
