Mental Health Crisis: Town of Purcellville VA                                           

A subject with mental health and substance abuse issues sent a number of concerning text messages to the investigating officer. The officer met with the Magistrate who declined to issue an emergency custody order solely on the basis of the e-mails. As the officer had a pre-existing professional relationship with the subject, he coordinated a meeting with Mental Health to discuss long term strategies to deal with this situation.
