With much banter about protocols for police officers, citizens can do a lot to help reduce stressors. A main point would come from accurate reporting of possible dangerous or criminal activity.
For example, last Monday, July 18, an autistic client of an assisted living facility in North Miami, Fla. escaped the safety of the facility. An employee, Charles Kinsey, pursued the 23-year-old client in an attempt to return him to the home. 911 was called, and dispatchers were told a man was in the middle of the street with a gun, threatening suicide.
