Police calls involving mental health have doubled. St. Paul now devotes a unit to them

 


“There’s a man with a gun trying to hurt me!” a terrified St. Paul man told a 911 operator.

Officers rushed to his residence, but they found no sign of a gunman.

After the 54-year-old man dialed 911 on a few other days, reporting the same scenario, Sgt. Jamie Sipes responded to one of the calls. Sipes coordinates the police department’s new mental health unit.
