In this award-winning documentary, two Texas officers put compassionate innovative policing practices into action—with revolutionary results. On demand, free for Dartmouth students
Ernie and Joe: Crisis Cops follows Ernie Stevens and Joe Smarro, two police officers in the San Antonio Police Department's Mental Health Unit, as they divert people away from jail and into mental health treatment, humanely and non-violently--one 911 call at a time. In the process, Ernie, Joe and their colleagues are redefining policing and its mandate to "keep people safe," while providing a model of how to transform the ways law enforcement across the U.S. helps those who suffer from mental illness.
