"Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step"
The Foundation is committed to bringing citizens together to support the Redmond Police Department.
This year our focus is mental health. The Redmond Police Department has hired a full-time Mental Health Professional (MHP) and part time MHP who deploy alongside patrol officers to resolve crisis calls for service. They will also assist with crisis assessment, de-escalation, service referrals and case management.
We will be updating this page with further resources as the year progresses.
If you have any questions, please contact us here.
