Trump Signs David Trone’s, John Rutherford’s Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Act into Law
“The Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Act of 2020, would help law enforcement partner with mental health providers to provide incarcerated individuals community care as they transition back into society. This care includes medication-assisted treatment, community-level crisis response programs, and technical assistance to develop innovative training and treatment for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals suffering from mental illness. Recidivism rates decline when we address the mental health challenges that place formerly incarcerated individuals at risk of reoffending,” Rutherford’s office noted.
Rutherford, who rose to serve as sheriff of Duval County, said his background in law enforcement helped lead him to support the bill.
At the end of last week, U.S. Rep. John Rutherford, R-Fla., announced his support for U.S. Rep. David Trone’s, D-Mary., “Crisis Stabilization and Community Reentry Act.”
