Adams County, Colorado

Summary

Adams County in northeast Colorado is part of the Denver metropolitan area and is the state’s fifth-largest county. Adams County seeks to establish a secure data linking system that connects criminal justice and mental health systems to better understand the volume of critical incident response calls related to mental health crises and how these relate to service intake and diversion from arrest. Through this effort, Adams County will develop a dashboard and analytical tool to monitor progress on diverting people with mental illness from incarceration to treatment. These new solutions aim to reduce the unnecessary use of emergency services and the jail.
