We are excited to share that the U.S. Department of Justice, Community Oriented Policing Services has identified the Police Assisted Referral (PAR) initiative as a Successful Practice and Strategy. CMHA Police Department is one of three departments in Ohio to receive this designation.
Chief Andrés González, one of the Partnership’s Trustees, should be commended for his leadership, vision, and dedication to this project.
Congratulations to the rest of the wonderful PAR partners: CMHA Police Department, Case Western Reserve University, BeechBrook and Frontline Service. We at the Partnership are honored to have played a role in institutionalizing this initiative within CMHA, and know that PAR will continue changing the lives of residents, thanks to the tireless work of this team.
