Mundelein Police Department Selected to Participate in Law Enforcement/First Responder Diversion and Referral Mentoring Initiative 

Mundelein, IL — 01/09/2020 — The Mundelein Police Department has been selected as a mentor site for the Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities’ (TASC’s) Center for Health and Justice’s Law Enforcement/First Responder Diversion and Referral Mentoring Initiative. The Mundelein Police Department will serve as a mentor to other law enforcement and first responder agencies across the country in their efforts to respond to the opioid crisis.

Mentor sites were selected through a competitive process to participate in the program, which will fund peer-to-peer site visit opportunities for law enforcement and first responder agencies to visit mentor agencies.

The eight sites represent a diverse cross-section of successful diversion programs and collaborations between law enforcement and first responders, behavioral health providers, and other community partners to connect individuals with opioid use disorder to treatment, instead of entering the criminal justice system.

The Mundelein Police Department is one of eight jurisdictions that will participate in this initiative. Other counties include: Cabell County (WV) Emergency Management Services, Colerain Township (OH) Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services, Lucas County (OH) Sheriff’s Office, City of Philadelphia (PA), East Bridgewater (MA) Police Department, Seattle-King County (WA) Public Defender Association, and Tucson (AZ) Police Department.
