Co-Responders in Jefferson County

Jefferson Center has developed partnerships with three law enforcement agencies in Jefferson County including the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO), Arvada, and Lakewood Police Departments. This collaboration allows for two clinicians to work within each respective agency. Our clinicians are able to assist law enforcement with mental health-related calls such as evaluation and assessment of individual(s), psychoeducation for family members, care coordination between JCSO and Jefferson Center, and linkage to services both internally and externally within Jefferson Center.

For emergencies, please call 911 and request a “CIT” personnel respond to a mental health crisis. For non-emergencies, please call the respective numbers below and request a “case manager” to contact you.
