What happened – The Future of Alternative First Response

The Future of Alternative First Response: Building Sustainable and Scalable Programs was a national convening brought together Alternative First Response practitioners, community members, researchers, experts, and other stakeholders to learn, share information, problem-solve, and innovate.

On June 1-2, 2023, the Policing Project and the Georgetown Law Center for Innovations in Community Safety co-hosted a convening on alternative response in Washington, DC. This event brought together a diverse set of stakeholders from across the country who are engaged in this work for an opportunity to meet, learn, share ideas, and discuss the future of this growing field.
