City of Murrieta Programs
The Murrieta Police Department’s Community Policing Team has joined with the Riverside University Health System Behavioral Health Department to form a collaborative Community Behavioral Health Assessment Team (CBAT). Measure T funding allows the Murrieta Police Department’s CBAT unit to team a specially trained police officer with a County of Riverside clinical therapist to respond to calls for law enforcement service involving mental health issues in our community. The officer and therapist ride together in the same patrol car 40 hours per week. At each call they handle, the therapist takes the lead role in evaluating the behavioral health issue while the officer provides the safety over-watch and law enforcement expertise.
For more information about this program, please visit the CBAT webpage.
The mission of the City of Murrieta's Responsible Compassion program is to further improve quality of life by developing residents', businesses', and visitors' awareness, understanding, and participation in a comprehensive strategy to solve homelessness in Murrieta.
