Promoting communication between local law enforcement and schools
The “Handle With Care” Model
If a law enforcement officer encounters a child during a call, that child’s information is forwarded to the school before the school bell rings the next day. The school implements individual, class and whole school trauma-sensitive curricula so that traumatized children are “Handled With Care”. If a child needs more intervention, on-site trauma-focused mental healthcare is available at the school.
Handle With Care Partners include:
- Law Enforcement Agencies
- Schools and School Districts
- Mental Health Providers
- Community Partners
