You ignore the verbal beating and move on about your day. Later in your shift, there is a call dispatched for a welfare check. The reporting party is the school. They need a welfare check on an address that sounded familiar. A student left school without permission and their whereabouts are unknown. The student has a history of depression and suicidal ideations. Nothing noted today to indicate suicidal intentions. You recognize the address but are unsure why. You ask for a premise check and are told that you placed the resident from that address on a psych hold recently. You pull up the referenced incident and see this is Z’s apartment.

Do you:

A) Attach yourself to the call

B) Let the officer in that sector handle it?​
