How Crisis Intervention Training Helps Police Deal With the Mentally Ill | Wellness | US News

Police Departments the world over are taking training to help them deal with the Mentally Ill, in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, a number of Police Departments have taken these courses and try to have someone on duty at all times that can be called on to help during an incident. They have even helped nearby Police Departments with incidents. The officers first job is to keep themselves and others safe, then to try and deal with the person in trouble, it is not a silver bullet for the situations, and Police may still have to use deadly force to protect them selves and other nearby Citizens, but they have much better tools to understand what is going on, and have a much better chance at defusing the situation with the training they receive.
