Fostering Trust: A Conversation on Police Training and Mental Health

2318 Rayburn House Office Building

RSVP

Attendance will be limited for this function, so your prompt RSVP is very much appreciated.

Join us for a special abridged screening of the award-winning documentary, Ernie & Joe: Crisis Cops followed by a discussion on police training and mental health.

Every day, police officers step up to fill an irreplaceable role in the community, responding to neighbors in crisis. However, access to important and lifesaving training for officers is often limited—increasing the risk of excessive use of force and undermining officer well-being.

Ernie & Joe: Crisis Cops follows two Texas officers who are changing the way law enforcement responds to mental health calls. Ernie and Joe have unique insight into that crisis response as part of the San Antonio Police Department’s Mental Health Unit. This film examines Ernie and Joe’s daily encounters with people grappling with mental and behavioral health challenges. Following the film, panelists will share how federal, state, and local leaders can foster more effective and ethical policing and crisis response strategies.

Faith and Law has been an invaluable resource for my professional and spiritual growth. Through Faith and Law's lectures and discussions, I have learned how to apply my faith to thorny policy issues and developed key relational ties with fellow believers on the Hill.
