‘Mental Health Situation’ Resolved Peacefully by Carver Police
CARVER — Authorities briefly ordered a shelter in place in Carver on Monday while responding to a “mental health situation” in the town.
In a post to Facebook, the Carver Police Department says crisis negotiators and SEMLEC SWAT responded to the area of Copper Lantern Lane Monday morning to “assist with an on-going mental health issue with a resident.” Carver Police also sent out a reverse 911 call about the situation to town residents while shelter in place was also briefly ordered.
“The matter was resolved peacefully and the person involved was taken to the hospital for help. No further information regarding the person’s identification will be released. The shelter in place request was lifted. Thank you for your cooperation,” Carver Police wrote in the post.
Apparently, the reverse 911 call was only meant for the specific area of town the police response occurred in.
“Note: We apologize for the confusion, the reverse 911 should have only gone out to a specific area of town, somehow it went out to all. Technology does not always cooperate,” said Carver Police.
