Frederick Police Department Launches Co-Responder Program

The Frederick Police Department is pleased to announce a new partnership with North Range Behavioral Health to launch the Carbon Valley & Mead Co-Responder Program. This alliance strengthens the FPD's methods of community policing by working directly with a Co-Responder from NRBH. When a community member needs help related to a mental health crisis, a Co-Responder will be available to provide case consultation, crisis intervention, service coordination, and referrals to resources.

Communities are changing how they respond to behavioral health crises. When a call comes into dispatch, needs are assessed based on many factors. For example, if someone is experiencing a mental health matter, a Frederick Police Officer will request a Co-Responder from NRBH to assist. By establishing and providing a coordinated approach, the goal is to reduce emergency room admissions, jail admissions, costs for healthcare, duplication of services, and treat people with respect and dignity to help them through a crisis.

Read the press release and be inspired.
