MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Madison's police chief plans to introduce a new initiative aimed at helping people with mental health issues.
WKOW-TV (http://bit.ly/1yURSDu ) says Chief Mike Koval will introduce several new mental health liaison officers at a news conference Monday and talk about how they'll be used in all of Madison's police districts.
Last week, Koval created two new task forces — one on violent crime and the other focusing on burglaries.
