Operation 2 Save Lives & QRT National
O2SL and QRT National’s team of Lesson Learned Experts (LLE) will provide executive briefings, mentorship to help community leaders gain an understanding of Pre-Arrest Diversion, Deflection, and community collaborations that address social health issues specific to their needs. Our team recognized executives in public safety, public health, and community leaders who have created and implemented national mentoring programs in the field.
O2SL and QRT National, a collaboration of public safety, public health, and community leaders, helps to create and support collaborative, community-shared responses for municipalities, counties and states in assisting vulnerable populations impacted directly and indirectly by substance use, mental health disorders, and behavioral health issues.
O2SL and QRT National are engaged in Pre-Arrest Diversion, Deflection, and proactive community engagement work in many states and communities throughout the country. Our O2SL and QRT National team of professionals come from law enforcement, fire/EMS, public health, social work, clinical treatment, peer recovery support, and persons with lived experience. Our team is continuously educating and learning from the field as to how to better serve our partners, sites, and teams. When new information is learned by our team members, we commit to sharing the information through discussion, training, and/or services described above that will positively impact our partner communities.

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) announced the release of the Model Law Enforcement and Other First Responders Deflection Act, a resource for states that encourages the development and use of deflection programs across the country.
Success stories that Chelsea brought forward. The expertise of the instructors. Chief Boteri was excellent as well.
Understanding the roles of the various community partners that will be part of the Situation Table; becoming conscientious of the goal to “connect to services” – not solve the problem or provide case management.
“When experienced public safety, law enforcement, social work, peer recovery, public health, and community leaders come together, each play a significant and specialized role in addressing the opioid, polysubstance, and behavioral health crises.”
