Register for Taking the Call Virtual Event

On May 20, 2021, Bureau of Justice Assistance Acting Director Kristen Mahoney will be one of the panelists in Taking the Call: A National Conference Exploring Innovative Community Responder Models, a virtual event taking place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. ET.

Communities across the U.S. are launching new responses to emergency calls. They are redefining who answers calls for service involving mental health or substance use crises, homelessness, “quality-of-life” issues, and other low-level situations. This event will bring people together from across the U.S. to explore how jurisdictions are working to ensure that emergency calls receive the appropriate response.
