Partnering with law enforcement for Crisis Intervention Training.

#WeekInJustice: Week 166

PCAO partnered again this week with TPD, PCSO, the Department of Justice Services, and Connections Solutions (the operator of the Crisis Response Center,) to facilitate Crisis Intervention Training: a full week/40 hour training for law enforcement to learn de-escalation skills for emergency calls involving behavioral health crises.

Forty one officers from TPD, PCSO, UAPD, School Resource Officers and many more chose to devote an entire week to study deeply the needs of the most vulnerable in our population. 

The National Alliance on Mental Illness remains a strong ally and supporter, and the officers received not only education on very sad incidents and hands on practice on how to de-escalate intense situations, but they also heard about the millions of family members nationwide and locally who are so grateful for the many lives saved by law enforcement trained in de-escalation.

Personally, it’s been gratifying to see the Training claw back from Covid to return to a four times a year in-person experience, and, to work directly with my brother, TPD Sgt. Jason Winsky, who has led these trainings for over a decade now.

On a lighter note, The Pima County Bar Association monthly “The Writ” magazine arrived in our office mailboxes today, and I did a double take at the cover photo.  The photos of the Young Lawyers Division showed half a dozen or more of our rising star attorneys, and I loved the chance to see them out in the community both in service back to the community and building friendships that will last a lifetime.
