Newport News Launches CARE Program to Help Police Make Mental Health Calls

Officials say officers will work collaboratively with the CARE Teams to provide individuals with the minimal amount of law enforcement contact necessary to meet their needs and the safety of responders and the community. The purpose of this program is to pair a paramedic with a qualified mental health professional to handle mobile crisis response activities within the city.

The program is staffed by the Newport News Fire Department and Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board.
