The Targeted Adult Service Coordination (TASC) Program was started in
October of 2005 and serves Butler, Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Johnson,
Lancaster, Nemaha, Otoe, Pawnee, Polk, Richardson, Saline, Saunders,
Seward, Thayer, and York counties in Nebraska. Through TASC mental
health professionals are available at the request of law enforcement 24
hours a day, 7 days a week, to assist individuals in crisis.
Through the program, law enforcement agencies in each of the counties served are provided with access to a specific crisis line. TASC employees respond to calls from law enforcement and are available to provide consultation, assist in recognizing an individuals needs, and identifying resources to meet those needs.
Law enforcement may call TASC when an officer doubts a need to place an individual in Emergency Protective Custody (EPC), if an officer thinks there are alternatives to placing an individual in protective custody but is unfamiliar with what such alternatives may be, if the individual does not qualify for an EPC but needs assistance, or if the officer wants a consultation on a possible EPC.
The TASC program not only diverts unnecessary use of EPC’s but assists individuals in developing a crisis plan, accessing formal and informal supports, and remaining safe and productive members of their communities.
For additional information on the TASC program please contact Arnold Remington, Program Director, at (402) 474-0419 or via email at email@example.com.
