WORKING WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, POLICE PLANS, AND THE POLICE RESPONSE
Presented by Police Officer Ryan Jennissen, Madison Police Department (WI), and Sergeant Sarah Shimko, MPD
Although many Support Providers rarely, if ever, require the assistance of Law Enforcement, some inevitably will. Individuals directly involved incidents that require Law Enforcement intervention often feel overwhelmed and may not be thinking clearly. Fortunately, there are ways to mitigate some of the chaos during these challenging situations and increase the chance for a more positive experience and outcome for all involved. In this session, participants will gain an understanding of the role of Law Enforcement in crisis situations and how Support Providers and Law Enforcement can effectively collaborate with Law Enforcement prior to, during, and after a crisis.
THE EMERGENCY DETENTION PROCESS
Presented by Hannah Flanagan, Director of Emergency Services and Theresa Bednarek, Associate Manager for Journey Mental Health Center
