Crisis teams announcement
A new program created by the Behavioral Health Initiative will change the way the Albuquerque Police Department [APD] and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department [BCSO] respond to priority one, 911 calls with someone experiencing a behavioral health crisis who is not violent.
