MCPA Critical Issues Forum: Law Enforcement Solutions to the Mental Health Crisis
A majority of Minnesota police chiefs report an increase in the number of calls for service where individuals are experiencing a mental health crisis. MCPA explored the issue from a wide range of viewpoints on Wednesday December 13th at a Critical Issues Forum. The event, hosted in partnership with Nexus, was at Bloomington's Schneider Theater. It examined the events, incidents and policy decisions that have resulted in this trend. It also focused on what some local law enforcement agencies are doing to address the mental health issues and where real solutions exist.
