Goal: Get all of the necessary parties involved.
It is essential to have the "right" people at the table from the very beginning. That is, each representative needs to be in a decision making role within their organization or have direct access to someone with a decision making role. This is especially important for the police and prosecutor whose participation and understanding of the DMI initiative is imperative at the operational level. A well- respected community member and someone from the city management or the Mayor's Office can be extremely important when politics come into play (and they will). Getting the DMI going may require a "translator." That is, someone who can speak the language of DMI for different groups. And, this person does not necessarily need to be from the target area."
