If you or someone you know needs assistance, please reach out. For more information, visit Humantraffickinghotline.org/<br></p><p>Human trafficking does not discriminate. Anyone can fall victim to it, both men and women. </p><p>The trauma caused by the traffickers can be so great that many may not identify themselves as victims or ask for help, even in highly public settings.</p><p>Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in the United States. It can happen in any community and victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality. Traffickers might use the following methods to lure victims into trafficking situations:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><p>Violence</p></li><li><p>Manipulation</p></li><li><p>False promises of well-paying jobs</p></li><li><p>Romantic relationships </p></li></ul><p> <strong>Resources:</strong> </p><p>AATN Arizona Anti-Trafficking Network: <a href="https://aatnaz.org/" target="_blank">aatnaz.org</a> or 1-844-400-2286</p><p>National Human Trafficking Hotline: <a href="https://humantraffickinghotline.org/" target="_blank">Humantraffickinghotline.org</a> or 1-888-373-7888</p><p>Language barriers, fear of their traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement frequently keep victims from seeking help, making human trafficking a hidden crime.</p><p>Traffickers look for people who are easy targets for a variety of reasons, including:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><p>Psychological or emotional vulnerability</p></li><li><p>Economic hardship</p></li><li><p>Lack of a social safety net</p></li><li><p>Natural disasters</p></li><li><p>Political instability</p></li></ul><p>The trauma caused by the traffickers can be so great that many may not identify themselves as victims or ask for help, even in highly public settings.</p><p>Many <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/myths-and-misconceptions" target="_blank">myths and misconceptions</a> exist. Recognizing key <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/indicators-human-trafficking" target="_blank">indicators</a> of human trafficking is the first step in identifying victims and can help <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/human-interest-stories" target="_blank">save a life</a>. Not all indicators listed are present in every human trafficking situation, and the presence or absence of any of the indicators is not necessarily proof of human trafficking.</p><p>The safety of the public as well as the victim is important. Do not attempt to confront a suspected trafficker directly or alert a victim to any suspicions. It is up to law enforcement to investigate suspected cases of human trafficking.​<br></p><h2 id="tips04">Fire Department Tips<br></h2><p>Phoenix Fire is committed to providing the highest level of customer service and resources to our community, members, and visitors. Phoenix firefighters save lives and protect property through fire suppression, emergency med ical and transportation services, all-hazards incident management, and community risk reduction efforts. With 58 fire stations strategically placed around the city, Phoenix Fire has all hands-on deck in preparation for the influx of visitors and events within the city. Despite the city's preparation, Phoenix Fire also wants the community to be prepared:</p><p>• If you plan on attending any pregame festivities including concerts; Phoenix Fire encourages you to go prepared. That means, wear sensible shoes and clothing. But most importantly, go hydrated. Although the weather in February should be mild, the Phoenix sun can take its toll on those who are not used to it. ​<br></p><p>• In addition to Super Bowl activities, the City of Phoenix is proud to offer beautiful parks to its residents and visitors. Including more than 35 trails covering 320 miles throughout the city. But with its beauty, comes great responsibility. The Phoenix Fire Department and Parks and Recreation Department encourage everyone to review <a href="/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/2271" target="_blank">“Take a Hike.

Phoenix Launches Community Survey Tool to Assess Resident Concernshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/city-manager/2630City Manager1/4/2023 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2630/Newsroom_CityView_04.jpgPhoenix Launches Community Survey Tool to Assess Resident Concerns<div class="ExternalClass0B24CAEDA4C5420D95823850A205F66D"><html> <p> <em>​Partnership with Zencity for ongoing surveys to gauge sentiment toward City services and community priorities</em> <br> </p> <p>The City of Phoenix is launching a new public survey tool to better understand local priorities and concerns on a wide range of City services and the quality of life in Phoenix. The tool will enable the City to more holistically understand neighborhood issues and enhance our responsiveness to community priorities. The survey asks residents to evaluate their experience with different aspects of life in Phoenix including affordable housing, transportation, public safety and other City services.</p> <p>The launch of the new community survey is in partnership with Zencity, a community input platform used by local governments to hear from more residents and get meaningful and actionable insights. Zencity works with hundreds of other municipalities across the U.S. including Chicago, Seattle, and San Diego on issues ranging from public safety to American Rescue Plan Act implementation.</p> <p>“Phoenix is an innovative, data-driven city,” said City Manager Jeff Barton. “We are always striving to get input from residents and this partnership with Zencity will be a great step forward in really understanding the needs and concerns of our residents so we can continue building the Phoenix of tomorrow.”</p> <p style="text-decoration:underline;">Survey Methodology</p> <p>Zencity’s community survey incorporates voices from every corner of the community. To do so, Zencity sets response targets based on U.S. Census data about the municipality. Zencity ensures the security and privacy of its data and survey respondents. Survey responses are anonymous unless a respondent chooses to share their email address for follow-up purposes. Regardless, survey responses are kept confidential -- Zencity does not collect a respondent’s name, address, or any other personally-identifying information. Zencity’s weighting, conducted utilizing U.S. Census data, accounts for the responses of every single person who answered a question. The responses give a proportional voice to all demographics (e.g., by age, sex, race, education level, and income level) based on the makeup of the municipality.</p> <p>Take the survey now in English or Spanish or learn more about the community surveys at <a href="http://www.phoenix.gov/pio/survey" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/pio/survey.</a>​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/citymanagerNewscity-managerCity Manager
City of Phoenix Hires First Public Health Advisorhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/city-manager/2477City Manager9/12/2022 2:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2477/Newsroom_PublicHealthAdvisor2.pngCity of Phoenix Hires First Public Health Advisor<div class="ExternalClass741607F8BC5B4DB79AB2FCC040D2C4CA"><html> <p>​Phoenix City Manager Jeff Barton announced that Nicole Dupuis-Witt will join the City’s leadership team as its first Public Health Advisor on October 17.  <br></p> <p>When the COVID-19 pandemic began, the City sought professional consulting services to assist with Phoenix’s public health efforts in response to the pandemic. This expertise proved beneficial in advising the City’s strategic approach to pandemic recovery and response, and emphasized the need to bring public health knowledge to the City on a permanent, full-time basis. </p> <p>“The addition of public health expertise to our leadership team strengthens our ability to address public health needs across the City,” said City Manager Barton. “Public health is a central tenant to many of the City’s top priorities including heat response and mitigation, housing and homelessness, food systems, senior services, transportation and more. I am confident that Nicole's experience and data-driven approach will further position Phoenix as a resilient and prosperous place to live, work and play.” </p> <p>As Public Health Advisor, Dupuis-Witt will work closely with City departments towards the achievement of public health objectives and in support of City priorities. The advisor position was approved by Phoenix City Council in April 2022. </p> <p>“I am incredibly excited to return to Arizona and join the team at the City of Phoenix. It is an honor and privilege to be selected to serve the City as its first Public Health Advisor,” said Nicole Dupuis Witt. “While COVID-19 will continue to be an important public health priority for the near future, I look forward to working with the community on other critical public health issues and the vision toward a healthier Phoenix.” </p> <p>Dupuis-Witt brings more than 15 years of experience leading transformative health initiatives to Phoenix. She is known as a champion of equitable approaches to health services and multi-sector, multi-partner collaborations that improve health outcomes for diverse communities. Her extensive experience includes work in urban and rural districts across three countries, bridging local government, public health and nonprofit sectors. </p> <p>Most recently, Dupuis-Witt served as the Chief Executive Officer for the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit in Ontario, Canada – a role she took on at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Beyond COVID-19, she has also led comprehensive approaches to complex issues such as the opioid crisis, community food insecurity, mental health services and more.  </p> <p>Dupuis-Witt holds a master’s of public health degree from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro and an undergraduate degree in anthropology from Arizona State University. <br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/citymanagerNewscity-managerCity Manager

Phoenix City Manager Names Interim Police Chiefhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/city-manager/2425City Manager7/29/2022 5:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2425/Newsroom_InterimChiefMichaelSullivan.pngPhoenix City Manager Names Interim Police Chief<div class="ExternalClass1EDC01237C02427A93A31C3DDFC1B8C1"><html> <p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;">Today, City Manager Jeff Barton announced that Michael Sullivan will join the Phoenix Police Department as interim Police Chief on September 12, 2022. Sullivan currently serves as Deputy Commissioner of the Compliance Bureau for the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).  </span></p> <p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;"> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-family:Calibri;">In May of this year, current Police Chief Jeri Williams <a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/city-manager/2330">informed City leadership of her intent to retire</a> after an impressive 33-year career in law enforcement. Chief Williams will begin her retirement after a transition period to assist in onboarding interim Chief Sullivan. </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;"> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-family:Calibri;">As interim Chief, Sullivan will lead Phoenix Police through the currently open Department of Justice (DOJ) <a target="_blank" href="/police/doj">civil pattern or practice investigation</a>. “In the search for an interim Police Chief, it was my priority to identify a leader with the qualifications to guide the department through the DOJ investigation and propel the department forward,” said City Manager Jeff Barton. “Sullivan brings 27 years of law enforcement experience to the table, and he has led police reform efforts for major cities. His experience working in collaboration with communities, the DOJ, federal court and more gives me confidence he has the experience necessary to step into the interim Phoenix Police Chief role during this important time.” </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;"> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-family:Calibri;">The interim assignment is expected to be for approximately 12-24 months. During this time, the City of Phoenix will conduct a robust nationwide search for a permanent Police Chief. The search will include multiple opportunities for community involvement. “I am committed to providing transparent and inclusive public engagement in the search for a permanent Chief,” Barton said. “Input from our community, officers, elected officials, and labor groups will be critical to the selection process.” </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-size:17.3333px;"> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-family:Calibri;">Sullivan began his career in law enforcement with the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD). He rose through the ranks during his more than two decades of various assignments with LMPD, and was appointed Deputy Chief/Chief of Staff (second in command) in 2015. In 2019, he joined BPD as Deputy Commissioner. There, he served in the Operations Bureau as well as led BPD’s reform efforts and brought the agency into initial compliance with a number of the mandates of its Federal Consent Decree, which is a court enforceable agreement to resolve the DOJ's findings from their 2017 investigation into BPD. Under his leadership, the agency made significant progress and moved the reform efforts from the development phase to implementation.  </span> </span></p> <p><span style="font-family:Calibri;font-size:17.3333px;"> <span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;">S</span><span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;">ullivan is a graduate of the Southern Police Institute’s Administrative Officers Course, the</span> <span style="color:windowtext;background-color:window;"> Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP)/MacArthur Foundation Institute on Juvenile Justice at Yale University, and the Major Cities Chiefs Association Police Executive Leadership Institute. He holds a bachelor’s degree in police administration and a master’s degree in the administration of justice from the University of Louisville. <a target="_blank" href="/piosite/Documents/MichaelSullivanBiography.pdf">Read Michael Sullivan’s full biography.​</a> </span> </span></p><p><span style="font-family:Calibri;font-size:17.3333px;"><span style="" lang="EN-US" data-contrast="auto">Media availability with City Manager Jeff Barton and interim Chief Michael Sullivan will be offered in September.</span><span style="" data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}"> </span><br></span></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/citymanagerNewscity-managerCity Manager
