Seattle’s arrest alternative, LEAD, moves beyond police

As highlighted in the past, our LEAD program participants have “60% lower odds of arrest for six months after their first arrest and 39% lower odds of catching a felony case over the next two years.” With protests in the area showing large support for a shift to community-led programs in response to 9-1-1 calls on cases of homelessness, mental health, drug use, and sex work, find out how allocating funds away from the police and to programs like ours will make our communities safer for all.
