Connections: Discussing Monroe County's FIT Team
If 911 is going to send fewer police officers to emergency calls, who goes instead? Monroe County has put together a Forensic Intervention (FIT) Team. The goal is to provide an appropriate response for every individual situation. How is it funded? How does it work?
We explore it with our guests:
- Corinda Crossdale, deputy county executive for Health and Human Services
- Meghan Jenner, manager of the Office of Mental Health Services, and FIT supervisor
