Chapters of the Adaptable Blueprint for Safety

A companion document to The Saint Paul Blueprint for Safety designed to be used by communities that want to adapt The Blueprint to their local setting. It is generic in the sense that it does not outline protocols, procedures, etc. that are specific to a particular community. It includes additional suggested practices and policies that were not adopted in Saint Paul but are considered to be effective intervention strategies.

Please note that while the limits of technology require that the document be downloaded in several parts, The Blueprint for Safety is written as a single document with a chapter for each agency. It is not a collection of good policies; it is a collective policy with each chapter linked inextricably to the whole.
