The IACP recognizes that implementation strategies will
vary across agencies.
Local discretion should be utilized regarding any associated funding and/or training costs.
The views expressed herein are solely and exclusively those

employers for which the members of the advisory group work.
While the One Mind Campaign names and discusses several
providers of various types of services, the IACP does not endorse any particular vendor or supplier in
preference to any others. Before engaging any particular vendor or provider, therefore, each agency
should carefully research it, consider alternatives, and make its own independent decision as to whether
to engage (or not engage) any particular vendor or supplier.
While the IACP believes that implementation of the
suggestions, recommendations and programs discussed in this report will lead to better outcomes in
police interactions with persons affected by mental illness, no course of action can insure or guarantee
any specific outcome. It is therefore the individual decision of each agency whether to implement any or
all of the suggestions and recommendations made in this report – which are purely advisory and
non-binding – and if so, how to implement them. It is not the purpose or intent of this report to state,
suggest or imply that failure to adopt or implement any of its suggestions or recommendations
constitutes negligence on the part of any agency.
