Sen. Ossoff Continuing to Support Local Law Enforcement 

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is continuing to support local law enforcement agencies in Georgia.

Sen. Ossoff is launching a push to pass the bipartisan Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Reauthorization Act of 2022, legislation he co-sponsored to improve public safety and help law enforcement respond to calls involving mental health emergencies.

“I’m focused on the safety of Georgia communities every day,” Sen. Ossoff said.

The bill would strengthen programs and initiatives that help train law enforcement officials on better responding to individuals suffering from mental health or substance abuse crises.

The bill would also allow local law enforcement agencies to support enhancements to mental health and substance abuse services, such as:

  • Integrating the new 988 mental health crisis line into emergency call centers
  • Deploying co-responder teams of mental health professionals with 24/7, 365 response capability
  • Improving access to case management services and suicide prevention programs
