Mental Health Community Liaison Program

UPD is excited to roll out this important resource for the Texas State community led by 10-year law enforcement veteran, Jessica Kinney, UPD Mental Health Officer

UPD is placing greater emphasis on holistic policing through the addition of a Mental Health Officer on the team. Officer Kinney, a 3-year veteran of UPD has experience supporting the Bexar County Sheriff's Department mental health services and has earned the Mental Health Peace Officer Certification. 

Officer Kinney will offer enhanced and targeted services in support of mental health calls, carefully considering the unique and diverse situations of each individual at the university.  

To support students, faculty and staff at Texas State, Officer Kinney is working in close contact with the Texas State Counseling Center, and in partnership with local agencies.
