A different kind of 911 call


“We, as leaders of police agencies, should urge all of our police officers to watch this film. The value of seeing Ernie and Joe utilizing tools that we teach our officers is more powerful than any training class alone could deliver. Officers need to see, know, and believe they are capable of making remarkable impacts in individuals’ lives, especially in moments of crisis. This film beautifully illustrates in real-time what we teach.”

Renee Dominguez, Acting Chief of Police New Haven, CT

“This is a powerful film that should be part of any law enforcement agency’s CIT training program for years to come.”

Todd Gyure, Mental Health Liaison, Garland TX PD
