June 19th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan, along with the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP), today announced the expansion of the Handle With Care initiative into 11 counties statewide, the release of a public, interactive data dashboard detailing outcomes across Maryland, and information regarding the first ever Handle With Care Summit to be held later this summer. Handle With Care is a new model adopted in Maryland by Governor Hogan, which encourages law enforcement and school systems to collaborate using a discrete, trauma-informed approach to address Adverse Childhood Experiences. This initiative seeks to prevent future victimization of children, and/or negative behaviors that could result from exposure to traumatic experiences.
