The CommunityStat Rapid Intervention Team typically meets every three weeks, beginning 2/23/17.
Led by the City of Burlington, the Burlington Police Department and the Agency of Human Services Burlington District, this Action Team will provide coordination of effort among law enforcement, public health and safety and human service providers to better address the fallout of opioid addiction in Chittenden County. This will be accomplished through an adaptation of a “CommunityStat” management tool model to share data, information and performance improvement across disciplines. The CommunityStat data driven model incorporates four components:
- Timely and accurate intelligence and information
- Effective tactics
- Rapid deployment of resources
- Relentless follow-up and assessment
Key partners include the Department for Children and Families, the judicial systems, probation and parole staff in the Department of Corrections, and treatment partners at UVM Medical Center and the Howard Center. Supported by the City of Burlington Policy Coordinator and the CCOA Data Manager.
- Brandon delPozo, Burlington Police Department
- Jane Helmstetter, Agency of Human Services, Burlington
