deal with that? >> we do respond to a lot of calls where a criminal act has not occurred and maybe a person is going through a crisis moment. once we deem that the situation is safe we can still call them in and if there was no crime committed then absolutely we would get them down that treatment path first. >> reporter: that's one of the goals of this program, not to unnecessarily throw people in jail. people realize that that's not productive for either the person thrown in jail or the police department. so they're trying give people the help that they need. and the commander that we spoke with said let's be frank police and community relations have not been great the past couple of years. as we've seen throughout the media, he says this can go a long way with improving relations. so this
