College Medical Center,
2776 Pacific Ave
Long Beach, CA 90806
7 PM to 8:30 PM
Speakers: Officer Armando Garcia and Officer Mark Brunson, Long Beach Police Department Mental Evaluation Team (MET)
Topic: Campus violence and mental health impacts
About MET: The Long Beach Police Department Mental Evaluation Team consists of sworn officers who are partnered with clinicians from the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (DMH). MET provides additional resources to patrol by responding to and handling calls involving the mentally ill and homeless. MET also provides functionality during SWAT responses. Some of MET's sworn officers are trained crisis negotiators and serve on the SWAT Team. The partnership with Department of Mental Health affords the Police Department the ability to offer increased service to those individuals who need access to mental health services in an efficient manner. The Long Beach Police Department Mental Evaluation Team is a "best practice" unit. MET officers and supervisors are frequently contacted by other local, state, and some out-of-state agencies interested in creating their own program.
