Emotionally Disturbed Persons (EDP)

The Emotionally Disturbed Persons (EDP) topic examines and explains nature of people with social, mental, or behavioral problems and equips cops with the tools they need to safely handle these subjects, many of whom are close to suicide. Dealing with an emotionally disturbed person can be one of the most challenging encounters for an officer on patrol.
