Mental Health Apprehension
On June 13, 2022 at about 7:00AM, the Brockville Police Service received a request for emergency response to a residence in the Bridlewood Dr. area. Information was that there was a 33-year-old male at a residence who struggles with his mental health. Paramedics arrived at the residence to assist him and they were confronted by the male with a knife. The male was not threatening the Paramedics, however, these situations are very unpredictable. Police arrived on scene and engaged with the male. After some great communication by police and paramedics with the male, he decided to put down the knife and surrender himself. He was then taken to the hospital for evaluation. This incident fortunately ended positively and no one was injured. Far too often we see that is not always the case. This is a display of the great work by everyone involved to achieve the safest outcome possible.
