The Bureau of Justice Assistance's FY17 National Training and Technical Assistance Initiative to Improve Police-Based Responses to People with Mental Health Disorders (MHD) and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) is funded through the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (P.L. 115-31), 131 Stat 135, 203. Through this program, BJA will support a National Training and Technical Assistance Center (National Center) to build state, local, and tribal governments capacity to develop, implement, sustain, track, and assist police and law enforcement in having effective responses to people with MHD and IDD. In addition to fostering more effective collaboration, the National Center's work will support public and officer safety. The National Center will assist BJA to coordinate and build upon existing assets and resources, such as the Justice Mental Health Collaboration Program (JMHCP), to better serve police agencies and their mental health and social service partners. The organization selected through this program to operate the National Center will leverage these existing resources and identify other best practices to be adapted and maximized at the local, state, and tribal level nationwide through specific training and technical assistance.
