Human Services Officers (HSO) are officers who respond to calls related to mental health, substance abuse, homelessness, and "at-risk" populations. These calls include but are not limited to welfare checks, mental health calls, criminal, traffic, civil/domestic situations, mutual aid, medical and fire response. HSPOs work closely with The Pitkin County Co-Responder Program (PACT) when a call is determined to have a mental health component. These officers proactively interact with at-risk populations. Aspen Police Department partners with local and state human service providers, including Pitkin County Human Services, mental health providers, detox services, court systems, etc.
