Police Reform and Trauma-Informed Care with Becky Haas, Chief Christopher Leusner, and Chief David Roddy
SUMMARY: The October 2020 CTIPP Can call focused on the trauma-informed movement's role in police reform. We heard from trainers involved with CTIPP and who have assisted police departments implement trauma-informed practices - Becky Haas, Marsha Morgan, and Meagan Corrado - as well as Police Chiefs Leusner (NJ) and Roddy (TN) who have implemented trauma-informed practices in their own districts.
In addition to discussions around law enforcement, members of the National Trauma Campaign discussed progress in Congress. Jeff Hild, Policy Director at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University and the Policy Chair for the National Trauma Campaign, described the STRONG Support for Children Act led by Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley and Carolyn Maloney.
