LOS ANGELES (2UG) – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has launched a new resource that allows family members to provide sensitive information to deputies in the event a call for service requires assistance from mental health professionals.
Special Alert Request is a resource the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department uses to help you and your loved ones when deputies respond to your calls for service. LASD will enter a “Special Alert” in its computer dispatch system, and deputies will receive certain information when responding.
This information will not be used to enforce laws against you not your loved ones. By providing this vital information in advance, you are alerting deputies to the needs of the people in your home, which helps them bring the necessary resources. If needed and available, trained mental health support professionals such as our mental evaluation team will respond to the location and carefullv resolve critical situations.
