Eve Stratton, of counsel in the Vorys Columbus office, was quoted in an article for Tribune Chronicle titled "Stopping the Revolving Door."

The story states: 

"Retired Ohio Supreme Court Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton said 30 years ago, only 100 officers in Ohio had the training. But after a push to promote the training, more than 7,000 Ohio officers are CIT trained. There are more than 25,000 police officers in the state. The problem is, after a trained officer successfully manages the situation, not enough places for treatment are available. Crisis centers and more focus on a continuum of care for follow-up treatments would help, Stratton said.

Without more services, jails and prisons will continue to serve as the “biggest mental health facilities in the state,” Stratton said."
