City Inside/Out: Seattle's Crisis Response

Seattle is trying to improve public safety by changing its approach, in the aftermath of calls for police reform and racial justice. From moving its 911 call center to a new department to creating new behavioral health teams, the city is investing in community-centered solutions in its crisis response. Staffing shortages and a social services system that's overwhelmed are making the new effort challenging.
