Distress Brief Intervention (DBI): working beyond frontline boundaries to build connected, compassionate support for people presenting in distressSession is joined by designated members of DBI programme from Emergency Services and 3rd party sector agencies
8.1 Jan Fox, Edmonton Police Service & Dale McFee, Edmonton City Chief of Police, Canada 9.1 Madeleine Smith, REACH Edmonton Council for Safe Communities, and, Dan Jones, University of Huddersfield, England
  Collaborations, systems change and community safety: the 24/7 Crisis Diversion Initiative Collaborating to provide trauma informed training to frontline workers and law enforcement members
Distress Brief Intervention (DBI) supports adults with emotional pain. It provides services with the ability to provide a caring and compassionate response for those in distress. The need to improve the response for people in distress was strongly advocated by people with lived experience, frontline services and research. In response Scottish Government established the DBI programme in November 2016. This is a national and regional distress collaboration between Health and Social care, Primary Care, Police Scotland, Scottish Ambulance Service, NHS Emergency Departments and 3rd sector agencies.

Community Triage is for persons who come into contact with the police in the community and are suffering from mental health crisis. Community Triage is available in 9 out of  13 local policing divisions in Scotland. Police Officers can request the assistance of Mental Health professionals to provide advice.

The panel will share their experience in relation to the initiatives and outline the intentions, learning and future direction of their work.

They will then be open to questions from the audience.

24/7 Crisis Diversion is a first-rate example of collaborative leadership. Edmonton police officers spend a disproportionate amount of time responding to ‘social disorder’ call each year.  This represents thousands of events, many of which do not require police intervention and could be better addressed with community supports. 24/7 Crisis Diversion Teams respond to calls directly from emergency services, as well as public dispatch via the ‘211’ line, for citizens experiencing non-emergency crises.  Teams address the crisis at hand and follow a ‘warm handoff’ protocol to connect the person with supports they need 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. The 24/7 Crisis Diversion team responded to 14,412 events in 2018 alone and is seen as an essential service to the City of Edmonton. Robust social media campaigns have reached hundreds of thousands of citizens, providing a non-emergency resource to call when they see a vulnerable person needing help. In this session we will show videos from multiple perspectives of the collaborative, offer an interactive simulation of our real-time information system and engage in frank discussion of the challenges and barriers to the success of the initiative.  We will also personalize the work by showcasing client journey maps of vulnerable Edmontonians who have engaged with our services. REACH Edmonton Council for Safe Communities is a backbone organization that works to mobilize and coordinate organizations, community groups and Edmontonians to find innovative solutions to community safety and prevention.  For the last 5 years REACH has supported the Trauma Informed Edmonton Committee (TIE) – a network of leading social service agencies and the Edmonton Police Services. The committee acknowledges that personal and intergenerational trauma is one of the most salient contributing factors resulting in people’s involvement in the justice and correctional system. The over-arching goal is to ensure services engaging with vulnerable populations are trauma-informed. This initiative is based on a collaborative and innovative approach to delivering trauma informed training, research and networking in Edmonton. TIE’s approach has resulted in front line workers and support staff creating better service outcomes for clients, which in turn contributes to harm reduction and safer communities.  A short Power Point presentation will highlight a recent environmental scan of clients, perspectives on staff knowledge, and trauma informed capacity and a video of the most recent training that speaks to this effective approach to training via interviews with training participants, facilitators, and Indigenous Elders.

Operation Threshhold: assertive outreach  Bringing policing for road safety out of the shadows Improving community and individual resilience through social navigation: an early help pathway to address vulnerability
Operation Threshold was conceived and initiated in Edinburgh to identify, engage and support drug users at the greatest risk of harm whilst robustly targeting those seeking to exploit vulnerable users through enforcement activity. The proposed discussion group will explore the assertive outreach strand of the approach that involved a police led intelligence cell retrospectively reviewing incidents and information systems to identify those who had suffered instances of public space non-fatal overdose. Once identified, the individual’s circumstances were triaged by a single point of contact within NHS Lothian who evaluated their health needs, reviewed recent contact with support and treatment services and generated an anticipatory care plan. Subsequently, the engagement team, comprised of police officers and peer mentors with lived experience of addiction, traced the individual and provided the necessary support or signposting/onward referral as appropriate. The session will include presentations from police and health representatives supported by case studies to probe the effectiveness of the approach, and will incorporate time for discussion and an overview of planned future work to further enhance inter-agency information sharing. Road trauma continues to be a global public health problem with between 20 and 50 million people disabled and 1.35 million people killed annually – 90% of the deaths occurring in low‐and middle‐income countries (LMICs). While a decrease in deaths has occurred in many high‐income countries, this is not the case in LMICs., where deaths are projected to increase by 80% over the next 20 years to become the second leading cause in the global burden of disease ranking.While road safety is an intersectoral issue police have a unique opportunity to achieve road-user behaviour change (and resulting public health benefits) through intensive and strategic enforcement. Police are a lead agency for road safety across government in many LMICs. However currently, prioritisation, institutional support and capacity for road policing in many LMICs is low. In 2017, Monash University (MUARC), WHO and Victoria Police hosted a Workshop on Safe Systems and Police Enforcement for Road Safety, which was attended by Chiefs of Police in selected Pacific Island countries. The focus of this session is to present a case example of the development and implementation of a police capacity building program suitable for LMICs and to bring together operational police, researchers and related agencies to share experiences, challenges and future opportunities for traffic policing in LMICs. Whilst Police demand for public welfare and safety is increasing, efforts to address vulnerability often result in “no further action” (NFA), with many individuals unable to receive intervention to address their needs. To address the lack of early intervention and preventative activity the Early Action Together Program was developed, a collaboration between Public Health Wales and the four Wales Police Forces and Police and Crime Commissioners, in partnership with Criminal Justice, Youth Justice and third sector organisations. The programme aims to facilitate the start of a transformation of policing and criminal justice in Wales to take a multi-agency, public health ACE and trauma informed approach to vulnerability. Each force are required to develop localised early help referral pathways to address vulnerability at the earliest opportunity and where possible, before statutory intervention is required. North Wales Police are testing Social Navigation models within a policing context, a multi-agency approach which draws on local partners to find a community resolution to address presenting needs or vulnerabilities that do not meet statutory thresholds.

The session will present this model  and early findings from evaluation and research video clips and animations, a case study and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, feedback on outcomes and share good practice.

Collective Leadership for Scotland Supporting police: understanding CAM and its foundations in the THRIVE Model Your well-being matters: Police Scotland’s approach to well-being and resilience
There is a growing recognition of the need for shared responsibility in leadership and action across public services in Scotland. There is a growing understanding of the need to work differently to achieve better outcomes and tackle inequalities. There is also an increasing understanding of the complex, systemic and interrelated nature of many issues that we are trying to address. With this comes the recognition that no single organisation, group or agency can tackle these alone, and that effective collaboration in support of transformed outcomes is difficult to achieve. Collective Leadership is an innovative programme of leadership development which works with multi-partner groups of leaders at whatever level they are in the system, seeking to tackle a societal or place-based issue for which they have day to day responsibility, actively drawing on theories and learning relevant to the issue and to leadership. Collective Leadership for Scotland seeks to reach beyond the boundaries of traditional hierarchies and public institutions tackling issues like, mental health and policing or the links between health and justice.Session participants will be involved in activities that will focus on their own complex issues and have an opportunity to reflect on their skills in practice. Police Scotland is  rolling out the Contact Assessment Model (CAM) Project, to transform the way that Police Scotland assesses and responds to vulnerability. In addition to adopting the THRIVE assessment (THRIVE – Threat, Harm, Risk, Investigation, Vulnerability, Engagement) methodology the CAM Project will also seek to introduce a range of alternate resolution options, designed around meeting the needs of the caller. One such leading option at initial point of contact will be Mental Health Pathways (MHP)

In advance of the implementation of CAM and the MHP, the only resolution option currently available to Police Scotland Control Room / Service Centre staff dealing with distressed adult callers / people with apparent mental health issues is to arrange for police officer attendance.  Whilst calls of this nature typically generate a high priority police response, police officers receive very limited training in relation to mental health.This will be an informal session where participants will understand what CAM actually means, how it is based on the THRIVE model and what the scale/ scope of it is, as well as how we have implemented it – and how it is being received. We see this as an opportunity to get other policing partners to interact with us and will look for their advice, guidance and some ideas as well.

Working within the emergency services involves exposure to stress including violent and traumatic events which can generate an increased risk of developing mental health problems including depression, anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Police Scotland have created the “Your Well-being Matters” programme, to ensure that our officers and staff feel informed, valued and supported – physically, psychologically, socially and financially. The program offers EAP services available 24 hrs a day and TRiM, a trauma focused peer support system. Furthermore a national network of more than 200 Well-being Champions has been established, all receiving NHS accredited Scottish Mental Health First Aid Training. The programme is embedding a culture where the promotion of well-being is integrated into all aspects of the organisation.  This is creating a safe positive and healthy working environment for all officers and staff whilst ensuring that managers are equipped with effective and practical information, policies and guidance to support the well-being of their teams. This session will include input from a serving Police Superintendent, who with 25 years police experience has lived with the challenge of suffering poor mental health throughout a large part of his service.

Policing Paisley in partnership Fortifying our relationships A story of hope: a whole community’s response to disadvantage
This session will examine systemic issues in police and NHS incident management; the effect of a new substance (Etizolam) on the local violence profile; measures taken to improve NHS and Police partnerships; measures taken to mitigate rise in violence. Two complimentary but discreet projects will be presented: Joint Police and NHS SLWG formed (Acute Interface Meeting), protocols revisited, local drug scene information shared, Police undertook NHS staff briefing program. Operation Winter Shield focused on violence reduction through targeted intelligence led stop and search, licensed premises’ interventions, focus on street level Etizolam supply. The Panel has been heavily personally invested in the matters above, are forward thinking individuals who will take questions and comments from the audience during the panel rather than this being an information download, ensuring audience participation. Serious and organised crime in Sheffield is rising and it is necessary to explore alternative ways of disrupting serious and organised crime. A co-located team was operationally led by a Partnership Lead (Sheffield City Council), Public Health Lead (Health Education England), and a Detective Inspector (South Yorkshire Police).This team actively shares intelligence to disrupt serious and organised crime.  The public health leadership fellow is engaged as a public health lead for Operation Fortify and is based within a police building and provides a public health perspective and completes the circle of prevent, prepare, protect and pursue by linking in other organisations from the wider system and bringing attention to the causes of serious and organised crime. This session will be a knowledge exchange.  We have a couple of options for making the session interactive and dynamic including role and group analyses of the challenges faced. Maryborough is a pretty post-goldrush town in Central Victoria, Australia where disadvantage is manifested in avoidable death, low birth-weight babies, mental health problems, family violence, unemployment and complex high risk health compromising behaviours. Many students are affected by adverse childhood experiences. Attendance and low self-belief remain challenges for the school, however, this story is not one of tragedy but of love and hope. A raft of interventions was initiated by educators to help students enjoy the present and cultivate belief in the future. This tale will include a baby-animal sanctuary, trauma-informed practice, two dogs, a “Nurture Group”, a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and a well-being farm. It will talk of students who left town to study, returning as a new generation of educators and mentors to champion their school and determined to break the cycle of poverty and disadvantage. This session will be led by two secondary school students from Maryborough Education Centre.
