Law Enforcement: Violence Prevention and Risk Considerations for Law Enforcement Officers when Interacting with Mental Health Consumers
1.5 hours - Police Officers responding to incidents involving mental health consumers and mental health professionals working with law enforcement agencies face unique challenges. Officers and mental health professionals must take the necessary steps to achieve a working knowledge of the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2018, the potential ramifications of the 988 Suicide and Crisis Hotline, and the required responsibilities when dealing with a person incapacitated or intoxicated. When such professionals fail to engage in ongoing self-improvement to better understand these critical areas, they face many risks. Specific case studies will be discussed where the opportunity to identify “red flags” that may have prevented mass violence were missed. Officers, Supervisors, and Police Command Staff Members will learn valuable information that may protect persons in crisis, their officers, their communities, and themselves.

Recommended for any law enforcement officer who may respond to incidents involving a person experiencing a mental health crisis. This course is also recommended for Chiefs of Police, Supervisors, and mental health professionals working with police agencies.
