Clarkstown Police Officers Graduate Crisis Training

County Executive Ed Day and Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack spoke at the graduation of fourteen Clarkstown Police officers from the newly initiated Crisis Intervention Training on Friday. Joined by Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan and Mental Health Commissioner Michael Leitzes at the Fire Training Center in Pomona, the officials thanked David Carlucci for obtaining a grant that provided funding for assistance of mental health patients in emergency situations. Carlucci stated that the $900,000 in funding allows first responders to use long-term mental health services in the county and de-escalation techniques to reduce arrests as a first resort. In March the County also announced the new Behavioral Health Response Team to respond to emergencies involving people suffering with mental health problems. Officials stated that the Crisis Intervention Training is the first step to ensure safety and long-term assistance for those involved.
