Is law enforcement the only justice agency that can play a role in addressing homelessness at the local level, or are there other possibilities? A new COPS Office webinar, scheduled for April 22, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. (EST), will address these questions. Titled Sharing Solutions to Address Homelessness: A National Perspective on Police-Court Partnerships, the webinar will provide a national perspective on issues law enforcement professionals face when responding to individuals experiencing homelessness, as well as how courts can step up to the challenge and be part of the solution.
The webinar will feature host presentations by Dr. Sean Goodison, Deputy Director and Senior Research Criminologist at the Police Executive Research Forum; Steve Binder, Esq., co-founder of the Homeless Court Program at the San Diego Office of the Public Defender; Caitlin Flood, Esq., Senior Program Manager at the Center for Court Innovation; and Bonnie Sultan of the Center for Court Innovation.
