Mental health is a necessary requirement for all law officers. I would rest easier knowing those assigned to “protect and serve” are able to take advantage of services provided under this bill. The idea that these resources could be better utilized, is not considering the impact the hostility of some residents have on a person. I also believe those posing an argument against, based on “ it should be available to all” recognize this is a bill that starts with the most important, rather than fighting for an unreachable goal. Imagine the LEO pulling up to your home after an altercation that had destabilized them. I’d rather not.
