What it's all about

Douglas County CSB Co Responder Program Mission: Provide an on-duty, co-responder team (law officer, EMT and behavioral health professional) 24/7 to the citizens of Douglas County to assist persons suffering from mental illness or substance use disorder to get the right level of care on a timetable that meets the individual situation of the client. We will ensure that Law Enforcement obtains clinical support virtually and face to face. DCCSB plans to utilize the licensed clinicians located at the 911/988 call center to work directly with responding teams by utilizing telehealth for remote delivery of services. Officers may request that counselors evaluate individuals experiencing a crisis to help determine the most appropriate course of action. This can include the use of a crisis line to direct the response or video conferencing.
