Policing The Mentally Ill

In this two-part national Murrow Award-winning series, Mark Herz looks at training that helps police in their interactions with people who have mental illnesses. 
The first part takes us to a training session where police are immersed in the world of those with mental illness, it's part of what's called Crisis Intervention Training, or CIT.

In the second part, we go out on city streets with Lieutenant Ray Hassett of New Haven to see CIT in action.
