According to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, mental health calls are approaching 10 percent of the total calls for service. These calls are often time-consuming and can be dangerous. Individuals experiencing a mental health emergency often have difficulty communicating which can lead to misunderstandings that may result in aggressive behaviors. Responsible for protecting more than 839,000 individuals, the Kern County Sheriff's Office understands the importance of leveraging new solutions to strengthen communication and processes around these mental health crises.
