PROGRAM:
Rtn. Brad Baldes introduced David Schwindt, Iowa City Police Officer. David introduced the data-driven justice program, a program to disrupt the cycle of mass incarceration & positively impact public service expenses.  Officer David Schwindt of ICPD served 5 years of his 18 years with the police department as the Downtown Liaison Officer. In 2017, David moved to a position where he focused more heavily on data-driven justice. David started in his new role with a goal to help agencies be part of the data-driven justice to get their data into the online platform. This platform allows different organizations such as hospitals, jails, and shelters to look at each other’s data and find patterns with people who are high-utilizers of these services. The data justified the need for housing with no restrictions. Cross Park Place is a demonstration project for the state of Iowa formed by the Collaboration Committee of the Johnson County Local Homeless Coordinating Board —a permanent housing intervention proven to save both money and lives—and will be targeted for the chronically homeless of our community demonstrating high cross-system service utilization. David’s work helped to qualify grants for this type of housing. Cross Park Place, includes 24 1-bedroom apartments with 24/7 staff providing psychiatry and medical care on site. Programs are in place to ensure there are better interactions and outcomes for those in crisis. Another aspect of David’s work provides a way for officers to transfer information. This information is critical when working for those in crisis.
 
The meeting ended at 1:00 pm as President Steve led the assembly in reciting The Four Way Test.
 
The Club enjoyed singing America the Beautiful & Viva le Rotary, led by Rtn. Bob Crane with Rtn. James Conard on piano.
