GHC hosts training for area law enforcement personnel
Georgia Highlands College’s Student Support Services and Campus Police Chief David Horace hosted a training called “Introduction to Behavioral Health and Addictive Disease” for local law enforcement personnel, including campus police, police officers, hospital security and more.
Law enforcement officers who successfully completed the course will have a better understanding of mental illness, developmental disabilities such as autism and addictive diseases. They will also be able to identify available community resources, and get an historical overview of national and state mental health laws. Additionally, 8-hours of P.O.S.T. credit was available to all who successfully completed the course.
