RIGHT Care Team Announced

 

The Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute, Dallas Fire-Rescue Department, Dallas Police Department, and Parkland Health & Hospital System today announced the launch of the Rapid Integrated Group Healthcare Team Care (RIGHT) pilot program, which will provide a comprehensive emergency response to calls involving behavioral health emergencies.

This program is considered a first of its kind in the state of Texas. The RIGHT Care Program includes specially trained and equipped police officers, paramedics, and mental health professionals who will respond as a team to safely and effectively manage patients experiencing behavioral emergencies. In addition, a Parkland mental health clinician will also be housed in the 911-call center to monitor calls and serve as a liaison to Dallas officers across the city.  Chief  U. Renee Hall said, “This partnership exemplifies the service first mission of the Dallas Police Department and the City of Dallas. With police, fire, and hospital personnel working together on the RIGHT Care program, we are able to provide the best service to our community.” The program is scheduled to launch January 29, 2018.

The first phase of this program is made possible thanks to a grant from the W.W. Caruth Jr. Foundation at Communities Foundation of Texas (Caruth). Also, we would like to thank the North Texas Auto Dealers Association for generously donating a response vehicle for the RIGHT Care team.

On December 12, 2017, at approximately 12:30 a.m., four victims were lured to a vacant apartment in the 8000 block of Chariot Street and were robbed and beaten. All four victims had used the dating app “Grindr” to communicate with the suspects. Dallas police officers took a 17 year old Latin male into custody after it was discovered he was involved with committing these offenses. The Latin male is currently charged with four counts of Aggravated Robbery and is being held in the Dallas County Jail.

Since December 7, 2017, there have been three other robberies in the same area where victims were lured to the location after responding to posts on the “Grindr” dating app. Below are the dates and locations:

December 7, 2017, ​8000​ Rothington Road ​277622-2017 ​ 1:10 AM
December 7, 2017, ​8000 ​Chariot Drive ​278372-2017​10:30 PM
December 8, 2017, ​8000 ​Chariot Drive ​278417-20117​01:00 AM

These investigations are ongoing and it’s undetermined if the suspect arrested today is also responsible for these other offenses. There are also 3-5 Black males who were involved in today’s offense and possibly other offenses that remain at large.

Please consider these tips when meeting someone using a dating app:

• When meeting in surrounding cities that may be unfamiliar to you, always research a safe meeting location and familiarize yourself with the area

• Never go alone
• Always meet during the day
