dc.description.abstractRoutine police work brings officers in contact with all sorts of citizens, including those who exhibit bizarre behavior. Estimates of the nature and extent of those encounters are conflicting (see Cordner, 2006; Monahan, 1992; Morabito and Socia, 2015, this issue), but regardless of the correct numbers, it is generally accepted that a variety of problems involving those with mental illness are resolved by the police. We have learned that many citizens with mental illness also have alcohol and drug problems. For better or worse, the police are the frontline response to many citizens with mental illnesses and other conditions.
