Lake Oswego Police Department Hires Behavioral Health Clinician

LAKE OSWEGO – Since June of 2020, the Lake Oswego Police Department has been looking at hiring a person to work in conjunction with our department as a Behavioral Health Clinician. This Clinician would be part of the police department but would respond to those calls that would be best served by a person with specific, detailed, and appropriate Mental Health training and certification. As we envision it, this Clinician would be available to respond with an officer if needed but, more importantly, in many cases could respond alone to aid the person in crisis.
