City Admin Officer soliciting feedback on Unarmed Crisis Response. Deadline May 9, 2021.
April 28, 2021
On October 14, 2020, the Los Angeles City Council adopted a report from the Ad Hoc Committee on Police Reform relative to developing an unarmed model of crisis response (C.F. 20-0769). This report directed the Office of the City Administrative Officer (CAO), with the assistance of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Chief Legislative Analyst (CLA), and City Attorney, to develop and issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking one or more non-profit partners to implement a pilot program for mobile crisis response modeled after the Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets (CAHOOTS) Program in Eugene, Oregon (https://whitebirdclinic.org/cahoots/).
The CAO is also soliciting feedback from residents who live or work in Los Angeles, community organizations, and other non-governmental entities to help inform the parameters of an unarmed crisis response program within the City. Please submit responses no later than Sunday, May 9, 2021. Click the button below to fill out the feedback form:
