Behavioral Health and Disparities: Submission of Initial Policy Draft to Parties

BPD will revise its policy to establish a preference for the least police-involved response possible consistent with public safety.   The new policy should be consistent with the terms of Consent Decree.  The goal of the policy should be to "divert people with Behavioral Health Disabilities or in crisis to the Behavioral Health service system rather than jail or a hospital emergency room whenever appropriate" except when an emergency petition is involved.
