The Houston Police Department is the only police department in the nation, to our knowledge, to have a division dedicated to providing a professional, humane, and safe response to individuals with behavioral health problems and to the homeless. Houston's Mental Health Division is comprised of 35 law enforcement personnel and 39 behavioral health professionals. Houston is the leading law enforcement agency in the state regarding this issue and one of the national leaders. Houston was one of six police departments nationally selected by the United States Council of State Governments as a Leading Site for specialized programs for responding to the mentally ill. Partnering with Harris County for Mental Health and IDD, the Houston Police Department has developed six programs to deal with this important issue. A description of each of Houston's six specialized response strategies will be provided.
