The National Police Foundation (NPF) examined the kinds of approaches that small law enforcement agencies are adopting to respond in appropriate ways to persons with behavioral health issues. The study is designed to answer three questions:

  • What types of crisis response models are being employed by smaller law enforcement agencies and which are most common?
  • How many smaller agencies are participating in regional crisis response models? What do these regional responses consist of? What are the benefits and drawbacks to a regional model?
  • What kinds of data systems do smaller agencies have for tracking locations, individuals, and outcomes of behavioral health incidents? What shortcomings would need to be addressed in order to conduct a rigorous evaluation in these small communities?

In this webinar, researchers, academics, and practitioners will discuss the findings of the study and the realities in the field.
