About a month ago, the U.S. Department of Justice released a report of an investigation that found Portland police have engaged in a pattern of excessive force, especially against people with mental illness. This week, the police bureau responded to the DOJ findings by announcing it will reinstate the Crisis Intervention Team — a dedicated team of officers specially trained to respond to someone experiencing a mental health crisis.

What’s your reaction to the reinstatement of the Crisis Intervention Team?
