Abstract:

This presentation will focus on the recent piloting and validation of the Mental Health Attitude Survey for Police (MHASP), an instrument designed to measure police attitudes toward working with persons with mental illness, who police commonly refer to as “emotionally disturbed persons” or EDPs. The process of psychometric validation of this instrument will be described, and data obtained from over 400 police officers will be discussed. Finally, the use of this tool to help inform the development and gauge the effectiveness of crisis intervention and risk management training curricula on improving police officer attitudes toward EDPs will be addressed.
