Establish and fund a non-police mental health crisis response team.
Why is this important?
When the police respond to mental health crises, they do not keep us safe. Instead, they often escalate situations while negatively impacting community health across New Orleans communities. NOPD is not the proper institution to address most safety concerns, including mental health crises. There is no strategic way to train a police officer to respond to a mental health crisis with the same expertise that a professional mental healthcare provider would use to problem solve.
