I see dead social workers in the future.

Birmingham has the most violent breed of savages, and have literally nothing to lose.  Birmingham should be razed, or a wall erected around it.

I see the "social workers" being advocates for the bad guy if anything goes south during the DV call and it ends up at trial. I can't see how any of this benefits the police, but only helps cover the mayors ass with those who put him in office.

I have no problem with the cops receiving more "Social Worker" training but to send "Social Workers" out on police calls is stupid.

There are training programs that are slowly being implemented. Such as Crisis Intervention Teams that the National Alliance for Mental Illness promotes. But for cops to be both officer and social worker is asking too much for a job that doesn't pay enough and already has plenty of stressors.

A DV or mental health crisis call are among the most dangerous for an officer to respond to. Are you asking an officer to maintain control on the scene while filling out paperwork for the victim to go to a shelter or talk down and to transport someone who is having a possibly violent mental health issue?

Having social workers attached to specially trained officers for DV and mental health calls would be beneficial, however only larger departments will be able to have the manpower, budget, and resources for such teams.
