Digitizing the Handle with Care Process [SPONSORED]
Did you know? A national survey on the incidence and prevalence of children’s exposure to violence and trauma revealed that 60% of American children have been exposed to violence, crime, or abuse, and 40% were direct victims of two or more violent acts.
The Handle with Care (HWC) program enables law enforcement to notify schools if they encounter a child at a traumatic scene, so schools and mental health care leaders can provide trauma-sensitive support right away.
While the implementation of this initiative is critical, the current process for law enforcement to notify schools requires paperwork to be filled out and then submitted. What if you could digitize that process and submit HWC notifications with the touch of a button? Imagine the time that would be saved and the number of children’s lives that would be positively impacted through a more convenient and efficient process.
Main Takeaways from this Session:
- How your law enforcement agency can implement a more efficient Handle with Care Program
- Insight and case study results from Law Enforcement leaders who have implemented a digital, “next-generation” HWC process
- Why digital tools are needed to support law enforcement’s efforts within communities to protect children and to help those traumatized to heal and thrive
