        Launched in 2022, the VRT (Veterans Response Team) integrates specialized training for  law enforcement officers and first responders (who are themselves Veterans) with the highest priority connections to the mental health crisis responders, Veterans service organizations and Veterans Treatment Court. Working alongside the first responders are partners from Coatesville VA, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the Montgomery County Offices of Veterans Affairs, Mental Health, and Senior Services, the Norristown Vet Center, the Department of Public Safety, Mobile Crisis, and many more.

    When a VRT officer encounters a Veteran in crisis or in need in their community, they establish a connection through their shared experience of military service.  If the Veteran or their family needs a social service response, the VRT officer is able to tap into a direct network of contacts who can provide guidance, referrals, and direct assistance.  In total, the MontCo VRT includes 88 first responders from 24 local law enforcement agencies and has served over 100 local Veterans in need.

    Anyone can make a referral to the VRT by calling the Montgomery County Office of Veterans Affairs at 445-942-1979.  If the situation is urgent, please call Mobile Crisis at 1-855-634-4673 (available 24/7).  If there is a life threatening situation, call 911 and identify the person in crisis as a Veteran.

    All First responders interested in joining, or anyone else interested in learning more about supporting the efforts of the VRT, please reach out to Anna Trout at anna.trout@montgomerycountypa.gov.
