Title: MOTION, (AMENDED) dated 7/28/2020 submitted by Councilmember Landsman, when residents call 911 with an emergency, call-takers currently have two options for dispatch: Police and Fire. However, many calls that got dispatched to Police are focused on citizens experiencing homelessness, addiction or those with mental and behavioral health issues. Other cities have improved safety and saved money for taxpayers by adding alternative options for call-takers and we should pursue similar approaches.
