"K. Out of the general fund amounts in this item, $500,000 the first year and $500,000 the second year is provided for the Department to support five local pilots programs for the implementation of Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) models within existing policing and 911 models. Grants provided by the Department to localities shall be used to plan and implement evidence-based CIT models which divert non-criminal calls for assistance from police from police purview to a team including law enforcement and mental health professionals. Pilot programs may include mobile response or co-response teams, and must demonstrate availability of community-based mental health and related services, and meet the language needs of their population. The Department shall provide annual reports on the status and outcomes of pilot program implementation and operation to the House Committee on Public Safety and the Senate Committee on Judiciary by November 1, 2021 and November 1, 2022."


(This amendment provides $500,000 from the general fund each year for the Department of Criminal Justice Services to establish a local Crisis Intervention Team grant program.)
