CRESS stands for Community Responders for Equity, Safety and Service - a new department in the Town of Amherst created to provide community safety services in situations that don’t involve violence or serious crime.  It will create a civilian, unarmed alternative to calls that might otherwise require a response from the Police Department. The purpose is to ensure that any public safety response is anti-racist, equitable, just, and fair and that we offer preventative services that get at the root of assisting our community members to avoid necessitating public safety involvement in the first place. Learn more about CRESS at www.amherstma.gov/cress
