Merchandise Description

Police Interactions with the Mentally Ill


This presentation will focus on the emerging trend of plaintiffs pleading Monell claims based on the theory that a police department fails to train officers how to adequately respond to mentally ill individuals in a variety of settings. Courts appear to be breaking with prior patterns and finding such allegations sufficient to state a claim for municipal liability at the pleading stage. This presenter will discuss these trends and how to defend against them. Additionally, hear from the City of Austin’s Assistant Chief of Police on policy considerations, police operations, and training for officers regarding police interactions with the mentally ill.


Speakers: Melanie Speight & Justin Newsom
