(This amendment provides $1.6 million the second year from the general fund to add five new therapeutic assessment or "drop-off" centers. Therapeutic assessment centers provide a location where law enforcement officers executing an emergency custody order can transfer custody of an individual in acute mental health crisis where the individual can be evaluated for possible detention and treatment. Funding will ensure greater access to individuals in crisis and allow officers to return to their communities promptly.)
