Community Solutions’ Director of Public Policy and Advocacy, Tara Britton, will moderate a panel discussion about Ohio’s policy response to addiction, including the role of law enforcement and the criminal justice system at the Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s upcoming conference.
“In the wake of the addiction crisis, policymakers are engaged in a bipartisan effort to reform Ohio’s criminal justice system. In late 2019, HPIO released a report, “Ohio Addiction Policy Inventory and Scorecard: Law Enforcement and the Criminal Justice System,” that takes stock of Ohio’s policy response to the addiction crisis within the law enforcement and criminal justice sectors.
This report identifies the strengths, gaps and opportunities for improvement in Ohio with a focus on equity. Participants will learn more about these findings from state and national experts.
