This week is National Co-Responders and Crisis Responders Week.

What is a co-responder?
They are a mental or behavioral health professional who aids law enforcement in responding to calls involving people with mental health or addiction issues. The Southeast Alliance Community Care Team provides those services and more for the citizens in Balch Springs, Mesquite, Seagoville, and Sunnyvale. The Balch Springs Police Department is always grateful for their assistance. Thank you Care Team
