Law enforcement used crisis intervention training Tuesday to de-escalate a situation where a woman was destroying her own property. Here is a news release from the Shelton Police Department explaining how they used their training:
On Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at approximately 6:10 AM, the Shelton Police Department was dispatched to a distraught, potentially suicidal female inside a home in the 1000 block of May Ave.
Upon arrival, two Shelton Police Officers and two Deputies from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office located a female experiencing a mental crisis. She was alone inside her home, being very destructive to her property.
