Get Safe (Health and Safety, Goal #4): The primary goal of Safety Training And Risk Reduction (STARR) curriculum is to provide information and strategies that will change mindsets on behalf of law enforcement, community agencies and persons with I/DD when they encounter each other, thereby directly reducing negative outcomes. STARR is a three-tier model of education is specifically designed to impact systemic change by providing valuable and useful information, regarding prevention, crisis intervention, and recovery. Law enforcement officers are trained on how to better recognize, engage and respond to persons with disabilities. This will be accomplished through total of (6) courses: (1) 16-hour Peace Officers Standards Training (POST) law enforcement courses, (3) 2-hour consumer courses and (2) 2-hour family/support personnel courses during the course of the funding period. If you have any questions or would like to participate in one of these trainings, please contact us at
