Jail Diversion Workgroup


The workgroup collaborated with local law enforcement to create an educational video aimed to share best practices on how to approach someone who may be experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. The video was provided to police chiefs across Denton County as a tool to be used in staff development training within their departments.

The workgroup is developing a process to implement an integration model to reduce jail recidivism among those who are experiencing a mental health problem and/or crisis. The group is working towards gaining the needed support from appropriate community members to move forward in the process.
