The deadline for submission to the Provincial Human Services and Justice Coordinating Committee (HSJCC) Police-Emergency Room Protocols Project has been extended to Thursday, January 31.
The HSJCC is developing an Information Guide on Police-Emergency Room Protocols. The purpose of the HSJCC Info Guide is to assist police services and hospitals in Ontario to reduce emergency room wait times for police officers who are accompanying individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. The Provincial HSJCC is requesting police services, emergency room staff, emergency medical services (EMS) staff and community service providers who have knowledge of police-emergency room issues to complete a call for information and to submit any policies, protocols, standard forms and/or memorandums of understanding that are currently in place across Ontario that help to reduce emergency room wait times for police.
