Learn the skills needed to keep your officers and the community safe.
The Guidance Center partnered with Long Beach and Los Angeles Police Departments and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to develop a series of web-based trainings for any local or state law enforcement agency across the country to use at no cost.
The series offers training that is pragmatic, concrete and direct, with the goal of assisting patrol officers in readily identifying the signs of mental illness in the field and to equip them with the tools to safely and effectively address these encounters.
The series is formatted so that the videos can be shown during roll call, before the officers go into the field, and do not require taking anyone off duty.
Topics covered include nonviolent de-escalation tactics, how to assess serious mental illness, potential suicides, strategies for children, understanding autism, writing effective holds, and self-care.
Roll Call Mental Health Training Series can be accessed by law enforcement at no cost thanks to a generous grant from The Ahmanson Foundation.
