Program:  What's Different about Policing in Longmont?

Sergeant Andy Feaster, serving 21 years with Longmont Public Safety, spoke to our club about his role directing the the CORE (Crisis Outreach Response and Engagement) team.  Andy stated, “The CORE team is an attempt to put the right people in the right place at the right time".  The CORE team responds to 911 calls for service that indicate a mental health crisis. This team is a specialized co-responder unit, comprised of a specially trained police officer, a behavioral health clinician, and a paramedic. Once on scene, members apply their specialized skills to provide triage and assessment, de-escalate crisis conditions, manage field clearances, and divert individuals with behavioral health conditions from the justice system and the emergency room - redirecting them to appropriate treatment destinations.

Andy emphasized the importance of  the CORE team to build trust and develop rapport with clients.  The team arrives in an unmarked vehicle, (fully equipped to handle safety situations).  The clinical staff are dressed in regular attire. “We are also working to de-stigmatize mental health."  The team often follows up with clients after the incident has resolved.  “Many times the clients don’t remember us, however, we want to create a positive association with our team, so this follow-up is important."

The CORE team responds to more than 2,800 mental health crisis calls per year and engages in over 5,000 contacts with our community members annually.

Young Rotarian District Conference
Club members Blaise, Julia and Curtis spoke about their recent participation at the Rotary District Youth Conference.  Our club is working with Silver Creek High School and Niwot High School to engage Rotary action and support youth in their projects of interest.    
Vocational Talk: Dr. Ron Lichter
Thank you Dr. Lichter for your fun and informative Vocational Talk on February 21st.  Ron formally retired from the practice 4 years ago, serving for 63 years as an orthopedic surgeon. Some of his funny stories included his grandfather serving as Sheriff to the Czar in Russia, his loan shark uncle, and in the 1950's Ron earned $5.00 participating in CPR experiments on corpses.   Ron joined our club 4 years ago. A Rotarian for 30 years, thank you Ron for your many ways of Rotary service and your ability to see the funny side of life.

Welcome to Longmont Rotary!
Since 1919, Longmont Rotary has served this community through service projects such as winter coat drives, bell-ringing for the Salvation Army, etc.

“Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”
Our club, community, nation, and world need each one of us more than ever. I invite you to be a guest of our club by attending one of our meetings, enjoying our fellowship, and finding out how we can make our community, nation, and the world a better place.

Together, we will make a difference!
