Sacramento County, CA mental health crisis team will respond to certain 911 instead of police

Sacramento County, CA mental health crisis 911 dispatch

Planning

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors is implementing a plan to have a mental health crisis team respond to certain 911 calls instead of police officers. The mental health crisis team will be funded partially by a reduction in police budgets but up to 80% of the cost will be covered by state mental health funds. The procedure will start by using the existing 911 dispatch system but will switch to a separate mental health call center when federal funding becomes available.
