Frederick police are looking for ‘crisis cars’, but global shortages continue Police and Crime

The Frederick Police Department is on the lookout for permanent “crisis cars,” but an ongoing global supply shortage is making their mission difficult.

In July 2021, Frederick Police launched a pilot program to help respond to mental health emergencies with a mix of resources. In a crisis car, now an unmarked police vehicle, are a plainclothes police officer, paramedic Shepard Pratt, a paramedic with the Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services, and mental health provider Shepard Pratt. They form a crisis response team.
