Great article showing how one county is helping the community be better prepared for crisis intervention. When we think of a crisis, we automatically image a suicide jumper or a hostage situation. However what happens when it is non-violent or a special needs child is involved?
Special needs children can pose a unique problem for untrained officers and first responders. Not fully understanding how someone acts with a mental condition can lead to misuse of force or unneeded actions. It is important that crisis intervention programs also include non-violent and mentally handicap educational sections as well. Proper crisis training should cover a wide range of situations.
Lucky for us all there are crisis invention courses that can help train us. For more information please visit our webpage.
