Law enforcement will encounter individuals with disabilities at least 50% of their active duty time. Specific disabilities will pose greater challenges, be more likely to encounter law enforcement, and will call for more detailed training. This program will provide information specific to Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Personality Disorders, Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Substance Abuse, and Suicide. This two-day train-the-trainer course will prepare the participant to provide training on law enforcement response to individuals with mental health disorders. An extensive amount of tools and materials will be provided for interdepartmental access and reference.

Target Audience: Certified law enforcement officers working in law enforcement agencies.
