Gates Police to Stop Using URMC for Mental Health Arrests

Gates Police now say they'll bring mental health arrest subjects to Rochester General Hospital temporarily.

They've used Strong Memorial Hospital for years, but are changing that because Strong has released some of those subjects without notifying police.

Chief Jim VanBrederode says it's time for a change.

Gates Police and the Keystone Club are also calling for meetings with state officials to help close some holes in the mental health system, particularly those pertaining to discharges.
