Building Safer Communities: Improving Police Response to Persons with Mental Illness

Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), JEHT Foundation, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 2010

The IACP selected "Building Safer Communities: Improving Police Response to Persons with Mental Illness" as the focus for its May, 2009 National Policy Summit.  The goal of the summit was to begin a dialogue resulting in recommendations for local, state, federal, and tribal organizations that will improve the safety of community members and law enforcement officers when responding to crisis calls involving a person with mental illness. The resulting recommendations are intended to reduce trauma, injury, or death during mental health crisis calls and to promote dialogue between law enforcement, community providers, and partners that will sustain short and long term improvement in crisis call response, treatment, and recovery around the United States.
