Why Collaborate?

Collaboration among multidisciplinary agencies and individuals is critical for the local communities hosting a closed-circuit television (CCTV) trial broadcast to ensure that standardized quality services are provided among all the sites. Preparing to host a Safe Haven at or near the CCTV sites has the potential to create tension among community and agency leaders who are invested in the project's success. It is important to quickly identify leadership that can funnel a community's energy and enthusiasm into an efficient and organized community coalition to minimize the disorganization that may accompany an ad hoc effort.
