Atty. Gen. Harris said in her comments the program that the Burbank Police has started is “smart” as it frees up other resources within the city and countywide. She said the team already made a “huge difference” within a year.

The mental health evaluation team consists of Los Angeles County clinical social worker Dr. Jennifer Hunt, Burbank Police Sgt. Mike Parrinello, and patrol officers Scott Moody, Adam Adler and Kristiana Sanchez.
