WHO’S IN TOWN?
With Salinas, Ferguson and Albuquerque still reeling from fatal officer-involved shootings and their aftermath, this gathering of mental health and law enforcement professionals is timely. With co-host Monterey County Behavioral Health, Crisis Intervention Team International puts on 90 workshops. The focus is on how police can approach mentally ill or drug-addled people on the street. Albuquerque Detective Matthew Tinney leads a workshop called “Hey, Monterey,” on effective communication skills. Seattle-based Sgt. Don Gulla does a workshop called “Preventing Homicide of Cop During Suicide by Cop.”
