The City of Orlando is expanding a pilot program it launched in March 2021 to send mental health teams in response to certain types of non-criminal 911 calls, and hiring multiple positions to do so.

The Community Response Team was started to help reduce police involvement in non-violent incidents that could be better handled by a mental health professional than an officer and is operated in partnership with Aspire Health Partners.

The original contract was extended through March 2024 for an added $117,047 a year.

Positions include the Head of the Equitable Outcomes Team, an Impact and Scaling Specialist, and a Data Analyst. Click on the individual links for more information or to apply.
