HEART – Heal and Engage After Recent Trauma

Heal and Engage After Recent Trauma (HEART) is a law enforcement driven program that partners with the Danville-Pittsylvania Community Services, Danville Commonwealth’s Attorney and SOVAH Health – Danville. HEART places value on engaging the community in the aftermath of traumatic incidents, strives to communicate available resources and information to the impacted neighborhoods and assists the community with recovery efforts.

The Danville Police Department is committed to providing continuous improvement to the community through partnerships with both citizens and businesses. As such, the establishment of a HEART team is essential to fulfilling the community’s expectations. The HEART program’s mission is to have identified members trained and prepared to gather and meet with residents of impacted neighborhoods within 24 to 72 hours after a traumatic event.
