Police look for better ways to deal with people in crisis

In a Saturday, June 24, 2017 photo, Maggie Calderon, Juan Gabriel Torres’ ex-girlfriend and mother of his children, Juan Gabriel Torres Jr., center, Breeana Torres, background, and Jerry Torres not pictured, gather together for the birthday of Juan Gabriel Torres, at the Lohman Avenue bridge where they made a memorial. The 36-year-old Torres was fatally shot by LCPD officers Sunday, Aug. 21, 2016, on Lohman Avenue after allegedly committing a robbery and stealing a pickup truck earlier in the day. Programs in Houston and Santa Fe could be models for how area law enforcement agencies respond to crises sparked by people whose actions are determined as much by mental illness and substance abuse as willful defiance of the law.
