Working Together for Safer Outcomes - Senior Corporal Herb Cotner; Sherry Cusumano Sr. Corporal Cotner has served on the Dallas Police Department for over 29 years and has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at San Antonio. In 1993, Sr. Corporal Cotner became a certified instructor by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) and completed the Crisis Intervention Training course in 2004. In 2006, he served on a Law Enforcement-Mental Health Steering Committee that recommended that DPD adopt a policy of requiring 40 hours of mental health crisis intervention training (CIT) for all officers. Since then, over 2000 DPD officers have been trained. Sr. Corporal Cotner was the recipient of the 2007 Prism Award from Mental Health America of Greater Dallas, the 2013 Sam Cochran Criminal Justice Award from National Alliance on Mental Illness. He is the current Vice President of NAMI Dallas. Sherry Cusumano has coordinated legislative advocacy on behalf of Green Oaks Hospital in Dallas for over ten years. In addition, she has worked with and for consumers as an advocate and educator as Chair of the NAMI Texas Public Policy Committee and President of NAMI Dallas and as a Family to Family Instructor and trainer locally and statewide. She has also educated and advocated for people living with mental illnesses in her role as the Executive Director of Community Education and Clinical Development at Green Oaks hospital. Working Together for Safer Outcomes is the product of the partnership between Law Enforcement and The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). During this process both of us have learned from each other how we can better do our part in providing a safer outcome when a person is in crisis. Officer Cotner will present what he has learned from NAMI that can benefit law enforcement officers on the street when dealing with a person in crisis. Sherry Cusumano will talk with the family members what she has learned with working with Police Officers that will benefit the families of individuals with mental illness. And together all of these practices can be used by both law enforcement and family members to work together for a safer outcome.
