6) Policing mental health problems at crime hot spots
The police often come into contact with people suffering from mental health and substance abuse problems and there is evidence to suggest that these individuals are concentrated in small geographic units. The purpose of the current research is to present a proactive co-responder approach that addresses mental health problems concentrated in crime hot spots. Police officers were paired with mental health clinicians to spend time in hot spots in an effort to connect people who suffer from mental health and substance abuse problems to services and rebuild trust between the police and community. http://www.polizei-newsletter.de/links.php?L_ID=436
