Launched in June 2020, the Support Team Assisted Response (STAR) program aims to assist the police officers of Denver, Colorado. The STAR program focuses on low-level, non violent incidents like trespassing and mental health crises. By directing citizens to the help they need, STAR keeps people out of a broken justice system.
