CORE Program Recognized for Innovative Service Delivery

Our Clinician and Officer Remote Evaluation (CORE) partnership with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) was recognized with the "Innovation at Work" Award by National Council for Mental Wellbeing for using the latest technology to deliver patient care on the streets of Houston. In collaboration with our HCSO partners, we use this technology to connect mental health clinicians with law enforcement first responders at the time of 9-1-1 dispatch.

CORE is a collaboration between Harris County law enforcement and The Harris Center. Licensed master-level crisis clinicians connect with law enforcement officers in the field with via a computer tablet. The clinicians conduct a brief crisis assessment of the individual and assist the officers in determining the course of action to take. The team efforts between law enforcement officers and clinicians allow ensured safety and consideration of the individual’s mental health.
