Police rarely use deadly force. In fact, just one in 5,000 contacts with civilians involves deadly force. But when deadly force is used, it makes headlines, and it's not uncommon that the victim turns out to have a mental illness. This raises a whole host of questions, starting with how should law enforcement and correctional officers be trained to work with the mentally ill? On our program, we'll talk about that and about how our society got to a place where police have become mental health first responders. We hope you'll join the conversation Monday morning at 9 on 90.3.
