BEND, OR -- Bend Police are seeing an uptick in the number of mental health calls they are getting. Chief Jim Porter says those calls had flattened out last year but that has changed. Porter says his officers now have to attend a 40 hour class to learn how to deal with people in crisis. He says the county is helping with the Respite Center. Porter says his goal is to provide minimum services for people in crisis, which at this time, isn’t happening.
