911

911 Responders in Summit County
are receiving special training to respond to
a call
when mental health issues are involved

ASK THE DISPATCHER FOR A
CRISIS-TRAINED
OFFICER
TO RESPOND TO THE CALL

The Summit County Multi-Agency Crisis Intervention Team
has trained 530 law enforcement officers since 2000
so be sure to request once of these officers to respond if appropriate

Officers have been trained to deal with people with mental health
issues and will be able to respond more appropriately
to the call, keeping both the individual and the responder safer
