Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide intermediary and/or de-escalation services by responding on-site to callers experiencing non-violent, non-life-threatening conflicts, mental, or behavioral conflict situations. Our services are an alternative to legal actions while preserving the individual’s constitutional and civil rights.

Description

There is currently a cultural revolution demanding a change in police policies and protocols in regards to handling non-life threatening situations, especially involving minorities. Police are not well trained in de-escalating non-life-threatening situations and often these situations escalate to extreme and / or deadly ends. Our services will fill that gap.

I Pro Say is a solution for non-violent, non-life threatening interpersonal conflicts, mental or behavioral problems. Conflict is naturally occurring and should escalate to needing the police department called. Our organization trains to ensure Responders / Communicators are able to arrive on-site to callers then help de-escalate and intermediate to offer a temporary solution. This organization is for people’s convenience, when the situation is less severe that there is no need to call the police force.
