- Support efforts to implement a social services or Community Policing department at our Safety Complex (possibly in conjunction with Tiverton’s police/fire department) to address non-criminal emergency issues like domestic disputes and mental health emergency services.
- Encourage implementation of a Juvenile Hearing Board in Little Compton. “Juvenile Hearing Boards are an innovative model for community diversion. Based in restorative justice, JHBs are community, police, mental health professionals and schools working together to link youth to services, counseling and positive alternatives.” https://www.ricj.org/juvenile-justice (exists in 30 of 39 of RIs cities and towns)
- Invest in closer emergency mental health response services on this side of the Sakonnet River.
- Install automated speeding traps in town
