Dear Gov1 Subscriber,

In top news this week, the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, is facing $2 million in property damage after the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

And as has been highlighted by the fatal encounter of a mentally ill Rochester man and responding police officers, American law enforcement agencies are increasingly at the forefront of dealing with citizens who experience behavioral health crises. Captain Toni Roach of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office in Florida writes that "prudent agencies will invest time and resources up front" to improve outcomes for both law enforcement and the communities they serve; she shares a variety of innovative strategies to do just that.
