Members of the Columbus Security Collective need town of Columbus implement an alternate emergency response program, one that doesn’t contain police in a disaster response.

The town at present has applications geared toward offering different responses and lowering Columbus police responses, however Columbus Security Collective organizer Alwiyah Shariff mentioned his group believes present measures don’t deal with true disaster conditions.

“The alternate options that at present exist within the metropolis of Columbus don’t deal with this want for non-police groups to reply on scene when somebody wants assist,” Shariff mentioned throughout a public assembly of the collective on Wednesday at Trinity Episcopal Church at East Broad and Third streets, Downtown.

“We wish town to spend money on a public security system that our neighbors can depend on and belief, that makes choices based mostly on proof, and is accountable to the group,” Shariff mentioned. The group, in line with its Fb web page, “exists to create an anti-racist, health-centered emergency response program” for Columbus that doesn’t contain police.
