Texas Focus: Ernie & Joe Crisis Cops

Texas Focus: Ernie & Joe Crisis Cops

EVENT DETAILS

Ride along with two San Antonio police offers who are diverting people away from jail and into mental health treatment, one 911 call at a time. Ernie & Joe Crisis Cops is an intimate portrait of two Texas police officers who are helping change the way police respond to mental health calls. The film takes audiences on a personal journey, weaving together Ernie and Joe’s experiences during their daily encounters with people in crisis. These two officers are not your everyday cops. They are part of the San Antonio Police Department’s Mental Health Unit. After the screening, Ernie Stevens, who is featured in the documentary, will join us virtually for a panel discussion. Educators, to receive CPE credit please email [email protected] Tickets are $8 for Bullock Museum members and $12 for general admission.
