In the state of Maryland between 2013 and 2019, 128 people were killed by the police.

Anne Arundel County

Anne Arundel County MHS


The MCTs were designed to respond primarily to calls from police officers and are on police radios. In addition, if the OPS receives a call regarding an individual who is in severe crisis, they have the ability to refer calls to one of the county’s MCTs. The MCT can then be dispatched to assist in stabilizing the individual and connect them to the most appropriate services. The agency serves the entire county on a 24/7/365 basis. On days when there are sudden surges, AACMHA employs contingent part time staff (CPT) to assist.
