Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) today joined with Family Service of Rhode Island (FSRI), local law enforcement, and local elected officials to announce new federal funding for FSRI’s Police Go Team. Congressman Cicilline secured $413,000 for this program in the recently passed omnibus spending bill. This program was one of the ten community project funding requests that the Congressman made to the Appropriations Committee.
FSRI’s Police Go Team provides trauma-trained clinicians and liaisons to partner with police to respond, on-scene, to children and families exposed to violence. The objective of the Police Go Team is to prevent the consequences of traumatic events in the lives of children and adults in Providence, Pawtucket, and Central Falls via immediate social service response to violent crime. The collective trauma of COVID-19, and its acute impacts in diverse communities, has heightened the demand for assistance through FSRI Police Go Teams. At the same time, the Police Go Team provides a trauma-informed program that can help bring law enforcement and community members together. The $413,000 provided through the federal spending package for Fiscal Year 2022 will help FSRI Police Go Teams meet increased demand in their service cities for immediate assistance in response to domestic violence, sexual assaults, and other crime scenes, as well as mental health crises. “Founded in 2004 when I was Mayor of Providence, FSRI’s Police Go Team has a proven track record of ensuring that underserved and at-risk communities are served effectively and sensitively by everyone from first responders to police to family service workers. This program is a prime example of how we can best serve our communities, especially when our neighbors most need our support. I’m proud to have been able to secure this funding and will continue to do all I can to support this program and each and every Rhode Islander it serves,” “Through this critical police partnership and the funding that Congressman Cicilline was able to secure for our Go Teams today, we can continue helping victims simply by listening, reducing trauma and easing the pain of our community when they need it most," “We recognized from the onset the value of this FSRI – PPD partnership and we have grown this model regionally to more effectively serve those in our community in crisis. Seventeen years later, it still remains an integral part of our work in the neighborhoods the we serve,”
- Mayor Donald R. Grebien
