New Haven PD, Yale establish partnership for community policing program

New Haven

The New Haven Police Department is now the first in the nation to train every officer for calls about children exposed to violence. 

It’s in partnership with the Yale Child Study Center. 

Officers will go through a new sensitivity training that teaches what to look for in the way children react to trauma and how to spot symptoms that could predict a deeper impact in the long term. 

“When we see things that affect both adults and kids that are horrible, it’s painful and easy to turn away as a community, as a country. the men and women throughout this department are the folks who don’t turn away.”

Health pros from the Yale Center will be on call 24-7 to ride along with police for these calls. The PD has been working with Yale for the past 26 years.
