The Government of Saskatchewan is providing additional funding in its 2023-24 Budget to the Saskatoon Police Service and Regina Police Service to expand the Police and Crisis Team (PACT) program in the communities. PACT is a collaborative effort between government, police, and the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) to change the way mental health emergencies are handled in the community.
PACT pairs a mental health professional with a police officer, creating a team that is mobile and can help stabilize people experiencing a mental health crisis. Many retailers have felt that PACT has provided street-front support for mental health incidents occurring in and around Regina and Saskatoon stores.
