Prevention & Intervention
In 2017 MEEDAC commenced the Reach Out program in Geraldton, formerly known as the Community Patrol Services, which is an initiative of the Department of Communities. MEEDAC have been operating similar services for the past 15 years in Mullewa, Laverton and Kalgoorlie.
The MEEDAC Reach Out program and Community Bus Patrol is a prevention and intervention service, working at street level to minimize harm from “at-risk” behaviors and intervene in situations before actual harm is caused or the situation escalates requiring the intervention of Police or other services. The approach is non-coercive and seeks to be culturally appropriate.
