The Mayor’s Crisis Response Team (CRT) was established in 1998 to assist the City’s first responders (primarily the LAFD and LAPD) in crisis situations. The CRT responds to homicides, suicides, death notification assistance, domestic violence support, officer involved shootings, infant deaths, and serious traffic collisions. With over 250 screened and highly-trained volunteers, the CRT works in collaboration with many city, county, and community-based organizations to ensure that Angelenos have crisis care and support at their sides during their most traumatic moments. Volunteers are deployed to incidents and provide on-scene emotional support, counseling, connections to resources, and follow-up calls to ensure that people impacted by a traumatic incident have the support they need to begin the process of healing.
