Did You Know? - "Mental Health"

Every day, law enforcement is called upon to interact with persons suffering from mental illness and developmental disabilities.  A peace officer’s ability to recognize and respond to these issues could add to the safety of the officer, the public, and the subjects they encounter. This video depicts some of the encounters peace officers have with mental health consumers in crisis and the developmentally disabled, and directs the viewer to additional resources and training on mental health.
