Model Policy on Responding to Persons Affected by Mental Illness or In Crisis

International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), 2014

The model policy highlights the unique challenges that law enforcement agencies face in responding to or encountering situations involving persons displaying behaviors consistent with mental illness or crisis and provides guidance, techniques, and resources so that the situation can be resolved in a constructive manner. IACP's white paper, Responding to Persons Affected by Mental Illness or In Crisis, was designed to accompany the policy and provides essential materials and documentation to provide understanding of the policy's philosophy and implementation requirements.
