Improving crisis response with strategies that divert those with behavioral health needs to appropriate care has become a primary area of focus for both county and city law enforcement throughout the country. Innovative dispatch strategies include co-responder models with mental health clinicians, mobile crisis teams, CIT training for law enforcement officers or a combination of all three.
