Yavapai County Sheriff, Scott Mascher
Senator Allen sponsored and passed a Bill that truly helps those in need with mental illness. The “Reach Out Bill”, has a statewide vision to decriminalize those with mental health conditions and get them to the resources and treatment they need rather than incarceration. More efforts on the front end of the criminal justice system, lessens the likelihood of jail and prison. Senator Allen has a passion for working with those who suffer behavioral health issues and it was a pleasure to work with her on this legislation.
