Long Beach Police Department Announces The Mental Evaluation
Team (MET) program:

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, the LBPD introduced the #LBPD Mental Evaluation Team (MET) program which partners police officers with a clinician from the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) to respond to calls involving individuals who can benefit from crisis intervention.

If you or someone you know is in crisis and in need of mental health services, our MET team can be reached by calling our non-emergency dispatch line (562) 435-6711 or dial 911 for emergencies.
