LCU leaders, Sheriff, County Board member, Mayor of Waukegan and Waukegan School District Superintendent

As a result of hundreds of Lake County United leaders gathering to meet with the Sheriff, Mayor of Waukegan, County Board Members, and Waukegan Superintendent of Schools, LCU was invited to present their mental health strategy to Waukegan Police Officers during a training on December 15th. The action with Waukegan officials that prompted the invitation to present the strategy pressed for the need to increase training for police to deescalate in a crisis and divert from jail, support affordable housing, and improve and expand college and career counseling.
