About the event

The People have an answer to the question- How do we keep our  communities safe? The answer is Community Based Public Safety (CBPS).  Join us for a conversation with boots on the ground professionals from  communities across the country. This webinar will lift up the various  career paths within the profession including:

  • High-risk Interventionist: Specially trained  and certified person who provides high level crisis response to a  variety of situations causing trauma in a community. Responds when  immediate response is necessary.
  • Outreach Worker: Connects to hard-to-reach members of the community and provides  services outside the normal reach to individuals, liaisons between the  field of work being represented and the community, ability to identify  and target populations in need, linkage and short-term stabilization,  bringing education and awareness to their service area, provide service  referrals.
  • Community Navigator: Practitioner  trained in multiple disciplines who works in coordination with human  services, public health and public safety providers. (AKA Social Worker)
  • Community Health Worker: Specially  trained interventionist who responds to violence prone individuals in a  hospital setting. Connects individuals with services and mentoring  needed to prevent additional violence.
  • License to Operate: Community  leaders with connection and access needed for violence prevention and  intervention, often referred to as LTOs. This person may be a  freelancer, not formally connected to any organization but available to  assist. CBPS organizations typically have relationships with numerous  LTOs.

We will hear from them as they share best practices and the vital  role they play in keeping communities safe. Join us as we dive into the  work of community based public safety and learn more about the people  who do it.
