*Mobile Crisis Teams (MCTs) are locally-based police diversion efforts attempt to route mental health crisis calls away from police, and usually include first responders such as mobile crisis units with mental health professionals/clinicians. There is a possibility of forced hospitalization with response and assessment by mental health professionals. They may or may not include a co-responding police officer.

*Crisis Intervention Teams (CITs) are often staffed by police and include police response.
