More than half of the nearly 11,000 admissions to Milwaukee County's psychiatric crisis service last year involved an emergency detention by police. In addition, a recent analysis identified 85 "heavy users" who were brought in by police at least five times over a recent one-year period and whose treatment costs totaled nearly $5 million.

  • What will it take to stop having law enforcement be a primary front door to the County's mental health system?
  • Is better police training the answer, or do we need to improve the quality and availability of mental health services?
  • How will the huge changes in inpatient and crisis care taking place at the County impact this problem?

Join the Public Policy Forum at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore the relationship between Milwaukee County's justice and mental health systems.

First, we will hear about the latest changes at Milwaukee County from its Health and Human Services Director, Hector Colon.

Then, we will assemble a panel of justice system leaders to give their take:

  • Milwaukee County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern
  • Milwaukee Assistant Police Chief Kurt Leibold
  • Milwaukee County Deputy Corporation Counsel Colleen Foley
  • Wisconsin State Public Defender Tom Reed
  • Wisconsin First Judicial District Chief Judge Maxine Aldridge White

Moderated by Rob Henken, President, Public Policy Forum
