Let's stop beating around the Bush guys. Let's get started with today's episode. Today's episode of Felony Friday. We're going to be talking about a very unique and important program right here in Pennsylvania state where I'm located. This is the other side of the state. I'm in Pittsburgh. This is over in elizabethtown borough. We're going to be talking about a program called second chance P._A.. It's a pre arrest diversion program for addicts addicts and it's the elizabethtown borough and North West regional police departments who've joined up with blueprints for addiction recovery and they're establishing resources that favour rehabilitation over incarceration hope over helplessness helplessness life over death and today. I'm joined by blueprints for Addiction Recovery C.. O. Christopher drives box say hello Christopher everybody felons not and Elizabeth town police chief Edward M Cunningham how John just call me just call you Ed yes okay. I'm glad we got that out of the way I was going to be calling you <hes> chief Cunningham the entire show so let's Chris has been on the show before I think about I think it was fifty episodes ago Episode One Thirty Four Felony Friday so you know we don't need to hear Chris this whole back story you know he went into that of that episode. We don't need to rehash that we're going to be I want to focus on this program because it's so unique and I think <hes> from what you from you guys are doing and really implementing <hes> in your local community. I think I wanted to shine a light on that so Chris but if you could just tell us a little a bit quickly for people that haven't heard that episode is a little bit about blueprints for addiction recovery and why you're so passionate about helping people suffer from addiction so blueprints for addiction recovery is a state licensed drug and Alcohol Treatment Project. We operate out of five separate locations here in south central Pennsylvania <hes>. I'm personally very passionate about this. Criminal Justice work with chief Cunningham and the other police in this area because I myself was arrested and the M._A.. Felon <hes> I spent nearly seven hundred days of my life in jail for drug related offenses and things related to my addiction and really really loves working with progressive people like Ed to help other people avoid the struggles that I had to go through. Thank you for sharing that Christopher and <hes> ed if you could just tell us <hes> what attracted you to a career in law enforcement and what's your career progression been if you've been elizabethtown the whole time if you have you moved around a little bit now I actually I am a third generation police officer. My Dad and grandfather were both police officers and I got my start. I worked at a couple of small departments. Uh south of Pittsburgh part time until I finally in nineteen ninety five got hired full time by the city of Pittsburgh police and I had a wide range of experiences working at twenty. Three years with Pittsburgh worked my way up I finally when I left Pittsburgh. My rank was lieutenant and I I saw the damage that was done by drug abuse and drug use and and I saw that we were arrested in a lot of people for <hes> for small amounts of drugs and when what they really needed was help the problem was i. I just didn't have the resources to do anything about it. In Pittsburgh on January of last year I got hired as the chief of police here in Elizabethtown January eighteen and just through the progression of doing doing my job I met Chris and we we came up with this really really interesting idea of trying to let the police be the gateway to helping people who need help get help in my career I've done I've done some works some work in drug work some in crisis negotiations some in patrol. I've I've had very widely varied career on but this is one of the things that I've always been passionate about is trying to get people help who who need the help. That's fantastic so what what community south of Pittsburgh I live south of Pittsburgh. I actually worked out in Hanover Township in Washington county out where it's now. I guess it was the Star Lake amphitheater yeah so I was one of the officers that worked there. Her worked real hard in the summertime and not at all in the winter not not much going on there in the winter. That's so I'm curious. So this program you guys met. Each Other was at Chris did did you did you approach ed or how did this <music> come about that. I'm not a thousand percent sure <hes> think maybe my office reached out to him as the new chief of police and we just wanted to talk a little bit about blueprints and what we could do to help residents of Elizabethtown and really just introduce them and little did I know that Ed was a progressive police chief that really wanted to make an impact in people's lives and change the way things are done in Pennsylvania. He can talk a little bit more about the small meeting that turned into this awesome program it it started off as just a when I first got here I was trying to meet as many business owners as I quoted and with Chris being a business owner here in town we got it set up through a mutual acquaintance and just plan to have a fifteen minute meeting and we started talking and that fifteen minute meeting <hes> initially turned into about a three hour afternoon and that's where we really got the ball rolling for the second chance program Yeah I do remember Chris called me. This was probably before the program started. I was <hes> we have a mutual friend in DEL currency ran for U._S.. Senate and I remember Chris Talking about how excited he was about this program <hes> and just the potential of it before it even rolled out so <hes> I know that how long has has this been implemented for like. What's the what's the time for when was the kickoff date percent? The official kickoff date was January first of this year we were actually doing some test cases through the end of November and into December and got a few you people connected with the service as we were trying to work out the all of the details but the official launch was January first of this year okay and just to give some background on how it works so it's a pre arrest diversion diversion program for addicts so what types of cases what types of situations would this program and feel free. I should probably say whoever can best address the question just jump in because both address it. I mean this isn't directed to any one of you but how does that work on case by case basis chief the things the things that we're looking at for pre arrest and pre arrest diversion is just <hes> one one portion of the overall program and Bay we look at the second chance <hes> when we were building only Chris and I were building at we took the best parts of a number of different programs from around the country to put it together for something that we thought would be unique and really address all of the pro the problems that we saw that we were facing and for for ray pre arrest diversion it would be something that's a small level <hes> a small amount of possession or paraphernalia charge or maybe something like <hes> Chris and I were just talking about this earlier here today. How a lot of times theft cases are really the the the addiction is the motivator behind theft case and so if we have a small theft case that might be a a that might be a candidate for for the pre arrest diversion <hes> basically it's? It's not it's summary cases very low level misdemeanors. Were obviously not going to be ignoring felonies <hes>. We're not going to be ignoring anything violent <hes> when I'm saying felonies. I'm saying things that the criminal justice system says has to be addressed through an arrest <hes> it's going to be the smaller ones wants the smaller cases that we would have the discretion at the magistrate's Office to knock down to a fine or something like that those are going to be the kind of cases that were that are the true pre arrest diversion <hes> some of the larger cases. We're not abandoning those people if a person comes to us it or if we come in contact with the person who needs the help but who is facing a more serious charge than the police officers go into more of advocate role and we still make contact with the recovery specialist we still make contact and make a referral through the second chance program and and we move into helping them get the help that they need once they've addressed the legal issues that have to be addressed <hes> but another big part of the program is that we've also turned the police stations nations into <hes> gateways into to safe places that a person can come and say <hes> you know. Excuse me but I need help. I can't do this anymore. I need help and if they happen to have. Move a little bit of paraphernalia on them or a small amount of drugs or something then that would be something that we're not going to arrest them for asking for help. That's great so so from there once <hes> so say someone walks into the police station say one of these arrests are is made or I guess before they're arrested what happens then is blueprints contacted or how does how does that play out. The officers can call and the officers have received training on how to do an initial assessment of you know. Is this person a good candidate for the second chance program and we have a phone number through blueprints for the <hes> the certified recovery specialists and there are several of them that Chris has on on call for us and we have a number that we can call twenty twenty four hours a day seven days a week anytime of the day and we have a commitment through the second chance program that someone you know a live person will answer the phone and we'll talk to us and will if if it's appropriate will come out whatever time it is will come out to where we need them and begin the assessment <unk> process to get this person into help immediately and that's one of the things that makes aches our program unique among all the other programs in the country that we were able to find is that we have the C._R._S.. Who will come to the scene of where we are and begin immediately working to get the person help C._R._S. stands for certified recovery specialists so that's somebody who has trained to meet a person where they are a person who is pre recovery to try to get them into recovery Br and certified are loving overlords at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania so Chris this this.

How's it how's it funded is it a part of blueprints is it a separate entity is is entirely separate entity from blueprints? I obviously am the C._E._O.. Theo blueprints the blueprints is in everything that I do <hes> but second chance Pierre is a completely separate initiative <hes> up until very recently it has been completely self funded by blueprints on myself personally <hes> we are very close to attaining nonprofit status with the great overlords federal government and at that point we will then shift to an entirely different structure where we have a board that includes several notable folks and chief hunting included <hes> and will then be able to begin fundraising and have it become its own self supporting entity and hopefully show everybody <hes> that private citizens can do a lot to help this epidemic excellent excellent so this went into effect several months ago. Can you give us any idea of what sort of impacts been made so far. Is there any anything you can share cheap. That's okay we've had today. We've had fifty six referrals. Mostly through the the three. The three partners in the very beginning were elizabethtown police North West regional police and Susquehanna Valley E._M._S.. We were the three who got in at the very beginning and we're slowly bringing in other police departments and other E._M._S. providers to to start making this program available to people where they need it <hes> we we actually have training scheduled for two other police departments coming up in the next month or two and I Chris and I both have meetings with several other chiefs to try to expand the program but at this point we've had fifty six referrals and we're doing pretty much anything that we can think of to get this help out to other people <hes> <hes> one of the things that that were were doing is that we got Chris Involved in coming to our D._U._i.. Checkpoints and we have a blueprints specialists recovery specialists. I'm sorry a second chance recovery very special list coming to all of our stationary checkpoints so if we find somebody at a d._U._i.. Checkpoint who needs who is suffering from addiction and needs help were able to get it for them immediately right there on the scene at the at the the stationary checkpoint and we have we have some very notable success stories are very first referral to the program. Actually we kicked off at what at noon Chris like at noon on January first and we got our first call at seven o'clock that night and it was a <hes> a woman who was suffering from alcohol addiction who was at risk of losing her nursing job and second chance was able to connect are with Rehab and with the services that she needs and she was able to WHO <hes> complete the beginning part of that and my understanding is. She's doing very well with beating that addiction. That's fantastic if I can add to that John Thank jumping that was actually before January first I that was before we had even officially launched at officers that we've done the training with encountered a wonderful lady passed out behind a dumpster and when she woke up from her alcohol induced stupor she got a little progressive with the officer thankfully that officer had been through our training and he understood a little bit about compassion in times of crisis and a little bit about the brain science of addiction and he had four thought to say hey. Let's call the cert recovery specialists and get her some help now now if she had gotten charged with attacking a police officer or public drunkenness or whatever it might have been might have been at risk of losing her nursing license and through this program our first case <hes> saved ladies nursing license saved her job or means of living and I'm assuming that without alcohol she's probably even a much better nurse than she was previously so just in case.

Some work in drug work some in crisis negotiation some in patrol so I've had a very widely varied career but this is one of the things that I've always been a purdy passionate about is trying to get people help who need the help. It's fantastic so what what community south of Pittsburgh I live south of Pittsburgh. I actually worked out in Hanover township in Washington County outwear. It's now I guess it was the Star Lake amphitheater. Oh yeah so I was one of. The officers that worked there worked real hard in the summertime and not at all in the winter not not much going on there in the winter. That's so I'm curious. So this program you guys met. Each Other was at Chris did did you did you approach editor. How did this come about that? I'm not a thousand percent sure <hes> I think maybe my office reached out to him as the new chief of police and we just wanted to talk a little bit about blueprints and what we do to help residents of Elizabethtown and really just introduce him than little. Did I know that Ed was a progressive police chief that really wanted to make an impact in people's lives and change the way things are done in Pennsylvania and he can talk a little bit more about the small meeting that turned into into this awesome program it started off as just a when I first got here I was trying to meet as many business owners as I could and with Chris being a business owner here in town we got it <unk> set up through a mutual acquaintance and just plan to have a fifteen minute meeting and we started talking and that fifteen minute meeting <hes> initially turned into about a three hour afternoon and that's where we really got the ball rolling for the second chance program Yeah I do remember Chris called me. This was probably before the program started. I was <hes> we have a mutual friend in DEL currency ran for U._S.. Senate and I remember Chris Talking about how excited he was about this program <hes> and just the potential of it before it even rolled out so <hes> I know that how long has has this been implemented fort like what's the what's the time was the kickoff date per se the official kickoff date was January first of this year we were actually doing some test cases through the end of November and into December and got a few people connected with the service as we were trying to work out the all of the details but the official launch was January first of this year and just to give some background on how it works so it's a a pre arrest diversion program for addicts so what types of cases what types of situations would this program and feel free. I should probably say whoever can best address the question just jump in because both address it. I mean this isn't directed to any one of you but how does that work on case by case basis good chief the things the things that we're looking at for pre arrests and pre arrest diversion is just one one portion of the overall program and Bay we look at the second chance <hes> when we were building in Chris and I were building at we took the best part of a number of different programs from around the country to put it together for something that we thought would be unique and really address all of the pro the problems that we saw that we were facing and and for a for a pre arrest diversion it would be something that's a small level <hes> a small amount of possession or paraphernalia charge or maybe something like Chris and I were just talking about about this earlier today. How a lot of times theft cases are really the the the addiction is the motivator behind theft case and so if we have a small theft a case that might be a that might be a candidate for for the pre arrest diversion <hes> basically it's? It's not it's summary cases very low level misdemeanors. Were obviously not going to be ignoring hiring felonies. Were not going to be ignoring anything violent <hes> when I'm saying felonies. I'm saying things that the criminal justice system says has to be addressed through an arrest. It's it's going to be the smaller ones the smaller cases that we would have the discretion at the magistrate's Office to knock down to a fine or something like that those are going to be the kind of cases that were that are the true pre arrest this diversion of some of the larger cases. We're not abandoning those people if a person comes to us it or if we come in contact with the person who needs the help but who is facing a more serious charge urge than the police officers go into more of an advocate role and we still make contact with the recovery specialist we still make contact and make a referral through the second chance program <hes> and we move into helping them get the help that they need once they've addressed the legal issues that have to be addressed but you know another big part of the program is that we've also turned the police stations into <hes> gateways into to safe places that a person can come and say <hes> you know excuse me but I need help. I can't do this anymore. I need help and if if they happen to have a little bit of paraphernalia on them or a small amount of drugs or something then that would be something that we're not going to arrest them for asking for help. That's great so so from there once <hes> so say some walks police station or say one of these arrests are is made or I guess before they're arrested. <hes> what happens then is blueprints contacted or how does how does that a play out. The officers can call and the officers have received training on how to do an initial assessment of you know. Is this person a good candidate for the second chance program and we have a phone number through blueprints for the <hes> the certified recovery specialists and there are several of them that Chris has on on call for us and we have a a number that we can call twenty four hours a day seven days a week anytime of the day and we have a commitment through the second chance program that someone you know a live person will answer the phone and we'll talk to us and and will if if it's appropriate will come out whatever time it is will come out to where we need them and begin the assessment <unk> process to get this person into help immediately and that's one one of the things that makes our program unique among all the other programs in the country that we were able to find is that we have the C._R._S.. Who will come to the scene of where we are and begin immediately working to get the person help C._R._S. stands for certified recovery specialists so that's somebody who has trained to meet a person where they are a person who is pre recovery to try to get them into recovery and certified by our loving overlords at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania so Chris <hes> this this initiative second chance for P._A.? How's it how's it funded is it a part of blueprints is it a separate entity is is entirely separate entity from blueprints? I obviously am the C._E._O.. Theo blueprints the blueprints is in everything that I do <hes> but second chance Pierre is a completely separate initiative <hes> up until very recently it has been completely self funded by blueprints on myself personally <hes> we are very close to attaining nonprofit status with the great overlords federal government and at that point we will then shift to an entirely different structure where we have a board that includes several notable folks and chief hunting included <hes> and will then be able to begin fundraising and have it become its own self supporting entity and hopefully show everybody <hes> that private citizens can do a lot to help this epidemic excellent excellent so this went into effect several months ago. Can you give us any idea of what sort of impacts been made so far. Is there any anything you can share cheap. That's okay we've had today. We've had fifty six referrals. Mostly through the the three. The three partners in the very beginning were elizabethtown police North West regional police and Susquehanna Valley E._M._S.. We were the three who got in at the very beginning and we're slowly bringing in other police departments and other E._M._S. providers to to start making this program available to people where they need it <hes> we we actually have training scheduled for two other police departments coming up in the next month or two and I Chris and I both have meetings with several other chiefs to try to expand the program but at this point we've had fifty six referrals and we're doing pretty much anything that we can think of to get this help out to other people <hes> <hes> one of the things that that were were doing is that we got Chris Involved in coming to our D._U._i.. Checkpoints and we have a blueprints specialists recovery specialists. I'm sorry a second chance recovery very special list coming to all of our stationary checkpoints so if we find somebody at a d._U._i.. Checkpoint who needs who is suffering from addiction and needs help were able to get it for them immediately right there on the scene at the at the the stationary checkpoint and we have we have some very notable success stories are very first referral to the program. Actually we kicked off at what at noon Chris like at noon on January first and we got our first call at seven o'clock that night and it was a <hes> a woman who was suffering from alcohol addiction who was at risk of losing her nursing job and second chance was able to connect are with Rehab and with the services that she needs and she was able to WHO <hes> complete the beginning part of that and my understanding is. She's doing very well with beating that addiction. That's fantastic if I can add to that John Thank jumping that was actually before January first I that was before we had even officially launched at officers that we've done the training with encountered a wonderful lady passed out behind a dumpster and when she woke up from her alcohol induced stupor she got a little progressive with the officer thankfully that officer had been through our training and he understood a little bit about compassion in times of crisis and a little bit about the brain science of addiction and he had four thought to say hey. Let's call the cert recovery specialists and get her some help now now if she had gotten charged with attacking a police officer or public drunkenness or whatever it might have been might have been at risk of losing her nursing license and through this program our first case <hes> saved ladies nursing license saved her job or means of living and I'm assuming that without alcohol she's probably even a much better nurse than she was previously so just in case.

If you have to get out of Newark right now what you can do is head down to route seventy eight if you're headed out to the Parkway, you can pick up westbound seventy eight it's slow but moving through northern hillside right now again, it's corpses. Better option than westbound eighty which is still shut down as you head towards route twenty one and again as you've been hearing all day long twenty one at a standstill in Newark as well as those downtown roadways in Newark. But again, seventy eight westbound seems to be your friend. If you're headed out to the Parkway, you can try the westbound side of route three as well. If you're headed out to the park, we've got slowdowns through Bloomfield getting down towards two eighty and then some more southbound slowdowns on the Parkway through union and Ken. Oh work. The good thing about the Parkway here. Once it gets south of Woodbridge, it should open up in the Middlesex and Monmouth counties, and from there, you look good all the way down to route eighteen now we've still got the closure.

"Sponsored by wintrust Chicago's Dennis Rodman is in the studio. He writes about real estate for Crain's Chicago business and would he comes by? So usually my favorite half hour of the show. Thank you. Welcome back. Thank you. Welcome back to Las establish needles. Yeah. When you were travelling recently, I was in Barcelona. How 'bout that? Beautiful is wonderful. That's a it's a very beautiful city. A lot of stores. I wanna talk to you about that you've written over the past few days. One has to do. I think this is a fascinating story. This lawsuit filed by guy who did time ready did like three years or so back in the late nineties robbery over eighteen years ago. And now he's trying to rent an apartment, and he's going to apartments, and they're saying we don't rent and tax families. Right, right, which is legal, which is legal. Okay. And so they're going at it a different way saying that it's a civil rights violation based on race because the black population is disproportionate in both the prison population and the post prison the people who've been in prison population a little bit about your story where he is. So this was in Washington park just off the park Washington park. He and his partner and child lived in an apartment in west angle. Would they were concerned about safety? He went to look for an apartment and applied to rent at this building in Washington park owned by a very large company in Northbrook named Brennan shore. Although typical you know, there are a whole lot of entities, but they all lead in that direction. And he was initially told something else, but ultimately told we disqualify all. All applicants who have a conviction violent conviction within their the last twenty five years, right? Which dates back pretty far show. Right. And if you're a landlord, I guess you have a right to want to keep ex-felons out. Right. Sure. In fact, even the federal government has suggestions for has suggestions. Yeah. As far as I could determine there is not a law. There's no official guidance. You need to go back this much time or that much time HUD, recommends about two years and so what's going on now? So again, this is a civil rights case. Because the what the complaint argues is that this has a disproportionate effect on black people, so it amounts to a civil rights violation. And so what the civil rights group that filed? This lawsuit is saying is what if you look more closely at the specifics of an individual exa fenders file has there been an attempt at rehab at rehabilitation has the person had later convictions that sort of thing he was in his early twenties when this happened when he the incident happened in one thousand nine hundred seven and he was in prison until two thousand he's now. A fifty year old man with a child with a college degree with a partner. He's on disability and was looking for an accessible apartment on the south side that he could afford with a C H A voucher narrows your possibilities. And their concern is this narrows, it even further if you say well twenty five years after but in his case eighteen years after you got out of jail. He still won't let you gotta be a point where we start to accept rehabilitation or foster rehabilitation in twenty five years seems like a long time. But so this lawsuit than if it's not illegal to ban felons. And and they're saying that a disproportionate number felons are African American seems like a reach, but it, but part of the federal law right says, even if something appears neutral, you're still responsible for the outcome. Yeah. If it has the effect of discrimination. You're still responsible for the outcome. And that's that's what this and other cases rely on. So this is a case. There was a case in Washington DC with. Even larger rental firm where some relatively similar circumstances. And ultimately, the resolution was that the rental company agreed to look at individual circumstances. And that sort of thing rather than have a blanket policy. Right. So I think what the hope is here by the people who filed the case is that something similar would happen. They are they did file for damages, but they're also looking at. Changing the policy so that ex offenders have more of a chance to rent. So there's that story about a group of suing because it was being kept out right now, let's go to Hanover park, where there's a development where they wanna bring a particular population in very good segue. Steve a yeah. So in Hanover park. There is a site that has been empty for about a decade of former Menards site sort of an eyesore and a developer which is not relevant to what you just said. But I think is relevant to the development developer who represents a group of physicians who are creating a new concept wants to build retirement community that includes both for sale housing, which I wrote about and a medical unit which would be attached that would cater to primarily indian-american retirees and elderly, and there's there's a population there and the area, right? Yeah. They're wilson. Yeah. It's a it's an area where there are a lot of Indian Americans and. And the idea is. What I was told by the developer is a lot of older Indian Americans have trouble in standard retired mainstream. Let's say retirement communities because they're vegetarians because there may be a language barrier. And because a lot of times the holidays, they celebrate aren't celebrated so in at this place called verandah in Hanover park. There will be vegetarian meals in the clubhouse of this retirement community holidays, including Christmas and others. But also, including those in the Indian tradition will be celebrated and all staff will be bilingual. So you know, when I first heard that I'm like well. Wow. Is there any other retirement village for particular at necessity? But of course, there they're there are Jewish retirement centers. Right. And it also. Must be Christian retirement. Oh, yes. There are and historically. This is what I mean. A lot of a lot of individual ethnic groups had their own Swedish. Lutheran not also an ethnic group there were one hundred years ago. That's what was going on is. We had these sort of self sufficient beneficiary groups that would. Sponsor retirement homes for people in their community. This Indian thing one thing we should be clear about is. It's not discriminatory because they're not saying you have to be Indian to live. Right. So if you're who really wants a curry you could still retire. Exactly. Yeah. Or if you don't even care about the food. It's just the right location. You you could retire there. But the they're catering to their marketing it toward people with a specific group of desires like running, right? This is gonna work they broke they're gonna they've already they're building. The I think it's fifty five townhouses are being built and they've got a contract for eleven so it. Yeah. It's a viable concept wall. We're out west. We'll talk about maybe a referendum on the ballot in Hanover township and elsewhere. But I this on the wintrust business lunch. Start the timer because here's the wintrust.
