Scaling Alternative Response Programs
This is a past webinar co-hosted by Harvard Kennedy School’s Government Performance Lab. Our panel of experts expanded on the webinar series we started in January as part of our Reimagining Public Safety Initiative. The panelists explored different aspects of scaling alternative response programs such as: How can communities develop pilots that can later be scaled up? How can alternative responder programs ensure their services are fully utilized in the early stages? What practical considerations are implicated by scaling up, such as where programs are housed, how programs are funded, and ensuring support for the growing workforce?
