Law Enforcement – Mental Health Learning Sites Expansion

The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Police Foundation, selected four law enforcement agencies to join the Law Enforcement – Mental Health Learning Site initiative. The Madison County (TN) Sheriff’s Office, Arlington (MA) Police

Department, Jackson County (OH) Sheriff’s Office, and Tucson (AZ) Police Department were chosen through a competitive process to participate in the BJA-supported initiative. These four agencies join the current six sites to deliver peer-to-peer learning through a diverse cross-section of model strategies and examples of successful collaborations between law enforcement and mental health agencies. The 10 learning sites offer their experiences and expertise to promote strategies that can save the life of an officer, community member, or family member.
