This training resource guide is written for law enforcement personnel and staff at other agencies who are planning a training initiative that will support a crisis intervention team, co-response, or other type of specialized law enforcement–based response program, as well as for individuals looking to enhance an existing training initiative. The guide reviews common challenges experienced by several jurisdictions that have developed training for officers encountering people with mental illnesses, and synthesizes the key lessons they learned that could be of benefit to others. To describe these challenges and identify effective strategies for addressing them, the authors conducted field surveys, phone interviews, focus groups, and an analysis of the existing literature on law enforcement training.
