8 hours of CLE credit are pending.
Law enforcement agencies around the country are embracing specialized training for officers with regard to mental illness.Specifically, officers are being trained to recognize some basic symptoms of mental illness, and to interact with persons suffering from a mental health crisis in ways that help ensure the safety of the officer, the public and the mentally ill person, both at the moment of the crisis, and in the longer term going forward.
The CCBA has partnered with local attorneys, judges, treatment providers and law enforcement officers to offer a one-day specialized version of this training, aimed at educating attorneys and judges on these same issues.Now that officers on the street are employing this training, it simply makes sense to have the attorneys and judges who receive these cases in the criminal justice system obtain the training as well.
