Handle With Care Massachusetts

Handle with Care Interest Form

Handle with Care is a communication protocol in which law enforcement and/or first responders notify schools when they encounter children at a scene, and schools respond with trauma-sensitive interventions, including behavioral health referrals when necessary.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office is committed to providing all the necessary training and materials to ensure that communities are able to implement successful Handle with Care programs.

Please fill out the following questions, and we will be in touch with additional materials and resources.
