Baltimore Co. police officer reflects on mental health training
Baltimore County police officers say they find high value in crisis intervention training. Officer Joaquin Prudent has always wanted to be a police officer. He grew up in Parkville and hopes to one day patrol the streets in his home community. He's starting his career in the Woodlawn Precinct after he graduated a year ago from the academy. "I just want(ed) to be part of a change. I know policing had a bad stigma," said Prudent.
