People living with mental illnesses and intellectual and developmental disabilities are disproportionately represented in contacts with police, which can lead to stressful and dangerous conditions for everyone involved. Now, through Serving Safely: The National Initiative to Enhance Policing for Persons with Mental Illnesses and Developmental Disabilities, law enforcement agencies can request help to respond safely and effectively to incidents involving these populations. This presentation provides an overview of the initiative (a partnership between the Vera Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Assistance), describes the types of assistance available, introduces the initiative’s multidisciplinary project team, and highlights new product development.
