120 Law Enforcement Officers Killed by Mentally Ill

People with severe mental illness are being routinely abandoned by the mental health system. This places a tremendous burden on the criminal justice system. It forces Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) to step into a dangerous situation if the untreated become "danger to self or others". This too frequently results in people with untreated severe mental illness being injured, incarcerated and sometimes killed by police. It also, too frequently, results in police being injured or killed by people with untreated severe mental illness.
