Law enforcement personnel across the state have increasingly become the first responders to individuals in serious mental health and/or substance use disorder crises. Since responding to these calls are a significant part of policing today, a non-traditional law enforcement approach was adopted by the department to assist officers with alleviating some of those more complex and challenging situations.
