(Summit Pointe 46) Community Connection: Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department and Summit Pointe Change Lives

Calhoun County Sheriff Steve Hinkley and Summit Pointe justice systems lead Taneisha share their perspectives on how the Jail Services program has advanced in recent years.

In doing so, they discuss the Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) component, designed to cut recidivism among those jailed who are dealing with addiction or behavioral health issues. Sheriff Hinkley also underscores how these programs and the First Step behavioral health urgent care in Battle Creek has helped deputies help others.

The results can be life-changing.
