Police Officers Are Not Trained For The Work That They Actually Do
digs deep into the disconnect between police training and the work that they actually do. I am currently working on an appeal to the Montana Supreme Court that deals with this very subject. Officers were called to respond to a person threatening suicide. Instead of treating him as someone experiencing a mental health crisis, they treated him as a suspect in a crime. Had they responded appropriately to the situation, the outcome could have been much different.
