TTA, agencies must implement resources in the community without specific guidance, planning, assessment, contextualization and knowledge and guidance about best practices in implementation.

To support police and law enforcement agencies and their MHD and IDD service delivery partners to build capacity to improve their collaborative responses, BJA will support a National Training and Technical Assistance Center to Improve Police-Based Response to People with MHD and IDD (National Center).
