We all can play a part in promoting the safety and well-being of our community. One way that you can help is to be aware of individuals in distress and refer them to appropriate resources. If you are concerned for someone or feel they may pose a risk to themselves or others, please share the information using the reporting form below. SCWB staff will assess the urgency of the reported information and provide case management and/or BIT referral to address the concern.
