Co-Responder Initiative | Monthly Vulnerable Populations Report
Golden PD utilizes a Co-Responder model to better address both emergency mental health crisis calls, such as suicidal individuals, as well as non-emergency mental and behavioral health related calls such as conducting welfare checks and connecting vulnerable populations (homeless, elderly, children and youth, mentally ill, substance abuse, etc.) to community services and resources. The co-responder model draws upon the combined expertise of police officers and mental health professionals to provide the right resources and assure the best possible outcome for the citizens of Golden experiencing crisis.
Golden currently employs one co-responder who is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
