Expand Peace Officer Mental Health Support Program
Peace officers - peace officers mental health support grant program - eligible applicants - use of grant money - reports required. Under current law, only county sheriffs' offices and municipal police departments may apply for a grant from the peace officers mental health support grant program (program). The act opens the program to additional "eligible applicants", which include other types of law enforcement agencies, a statewide association of police officers and former police officers, and organizations that provide services and programs that promote the mental health wellness of peace officers. The act also specifies new permissible uses of grant money and requires grant recipients to report to the department of local affairs concerning their use of grant money.
