8. Presentation from representatives of Law enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD). NAMI New Orleans’ newest program, is a public health approach to policing for those who are criminalized for unmet behavioral health and social service needs. LEAD currently operates out of NOPD's 8th district, where we partner with officers to divert individuals with whom they frequently interact into intensive case management. LEAD-eligible charges include low-level, non-violent, municipal offenses related to substance use, serious mental illness, trauma, or poverty. Our model provides an alternative to arrest based on philosophies of harm-reduction and decriminalization. LEAD functions through coordination with city partners and criminal legal system stakeholders who provide collective governance and drive policy decisions. Presenter: Marie Kerrin, Project Manager, Patrick Kemmerly, Case Management Supervisor Officer Johnnie Brumfield, NOPD, and Ret. Judge Calvin Johnson, Interim Director of NAMI New Orleans
