Let’s Talk Interactive, Inc., a leader in customizable Telehealth Networks and Solutions, today announces its technology will be featured in the 2nd Annual Police, Treatment, and Community Collaborative (PTACC) National Conference on Deflection and Pre-Arrest Diversion. The event, led by C4 Recovery Solutions, is held November 10-13, 2019 at the Sawgrass Marriott in Ponte Vedra, Florida.
The Civil Citation Network (CCN) has partnered with Let’s Talk Interactive (LTI) to incorporate its secure online software into its Adult Pre-Arrest Diversion Program (APAD). The program enables law enforcement officers issuing citations to incorporate evidence-based assessments and appropriate intervention services—with the goal of reducing recidivism. ‘“Intervening at the earliest point possible is critical,” said Tom Olk, Founder of CCN. “With over 10 million misdemeanor arrests on average each year, this problem will only get worse. Our case management solution, developed with LTI, links law enforcement, clinicians, and stakeholders together to effectively manage community diversion cases. If we help communities continue to protect public safety, hold individuals accountable for their actions, and reduce the economic burden of an arrest for their citizens, well then we've done our job.”
Kiosks and iPads will be on display at PTACC so attendees can walk through the APAD process for themselves. Telehealth and telemedicine carts that incorporate LTI’s technology will also be accessible, demonstrating how behavioral and physical health care is being brought directly to jails in rural areas with limited resources.
“Our mission is to provide unparalleled access to quality mental, acute and emergency healthcare to anyone who needs it. We are proud to support CCN in their efforts to divert people who have committed nonviolent misdemeanors towards appropriate treatment, which can be accessed via our online platform,” explained Art Cooksey, Founder of Let’s Talk Interactive. Inc. “It’s our hope that our partnership with CCN will help keep more people away from the criminal justice system and result in increased public safety.”
PTACC is the only conference centered around training, technical assistance, and information-sharing on pre-arrest diversion and deflection programs. These programs provide alternatives to justice system involvement for individuals with substance use and mental health disorders, as well as other offenders for whom diversion is a better solution.
