Between April and May of 2022, the Madison Police Department will have social work services available to ALL Madison residents through a pilot program facilitated through Madison Youth and Family Services. The social worker may reach out to residents as follow up to a police report, for the purposes of offering further support and assistance to help connect people with any needed programs and services. In the short term, this pilot is will enable more immediate outreach to residents following an encounter with the police, and the experience of running the program will help the town to develop capacity for this type of service on a more permanent basis. Please note that any outreach from the social worker is separate from the police report, and is offered as a free, voluntary and confidential consultation. For more information please visit the Madison Youth and Family webpage, or contact MYFS or MPD.
