Fincher hosts study on mobile mental health for law enforcement

  • Mobile technology

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Derrel Fincher hosted an interim study Tuesday examining the use of mobile technology to provide mental health support for people who are interacting with law enforcement, which can be used by the officers themselves.

The study was held before the House Public Safety Committee.

Fincher, R-Bartlesville, said he requested the study so other lawmakers could see the benefit of the First Responder product, which is being used in conjunction with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services throughout northeast and north-central Oklahoma.
