Report to Albany on the LEAD Program- One Year Anniversary - LEAD Albany 2017 

08-03-2017 03:00 PM

In April 2016, the City of Albany implemented a groundbreaking, innovative public safety and public health intervention that aimed to reorient the City’s approach to substance use, mental health, and poverty-driven contact with law enforcement. This initiative, called Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD®) is built on an approach that understands that these issues are complex and difficult to easily improve, recognizes that behavior change is often a messy and lengthy process, and acknowledges that individual and systemic barriers often require a true “meeting of a person where they’re at.” This report aims to outline the background, origins, and development of the project, explore the guiding principles behind LEAD, define the key features of Albany’s model, describe the challenges experienced, outline the goals for the project’s second year, and provide a high level snapshot of the individuals served to date.
