The Caruth Police Institute (CPI) is making great strides as it seeks to partner with area law enforcement to provide education and leadership training. Upcoming programs (both independent and in partnership) include:

  • Suicide Prevention, November 4, 2016, in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance and hosted at the UNT Frisco campus
  • Fair and Impartial Policing for Dallas Police Department’s lieutenants and sergeants.
  • Race Relations Conference, October 28, 2016, hosted by Paul Quinn College. Dr. Melinda Schlaeger, CPI director, will present on “Policing a Diverse Society.”

CPI is also working on an important mental health related research project with the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute. The project focuses on mental health related 911 calls. Current statistics show that DPD’s South Central substation receives the most mental health calls in Dallas.
