Campbell Co. adds social workers to police force
According to a story on wave3.com, a Campbell County experiment has had some surprising results. Four years ago, facing a budget crunch, the town of Alexandria, KY, hired a social worker to respond with police officers, and help with calls about "domestic violence, mental health and substance abuse."
According to former Alexandria Police Department chief Mike Ward, quoted in the article, there have been significant cost savings as well as a reduction in repeat 911 calls and incarcerations.
