Community and Police Advocacy (C.A.P.P.A.)
The CAPPA program is modeled upon practices proven to have worked in law enforcement departments nationwide by partnering mental health and community providers to better assist the homeless and people suffering with mental health. These jurisdictions have documented impressive, evidence based outcomes as a result of their partnership program that include:
- Significantly less assaults and injuries upon officers and less fatal shootings of people
- Favorable public image, fewer lawsuits and less negative press
- Greatly improved relationships between mental health and community providers
