Responding to reports that a record number of mentally ill inmates are filling Los Angeles County's jails, an official task force has recommended the creation of 24-hour psychiatric emergency response teams to serve central Los Angeles, officials said Monday. The response teams, composed of police officers and psychiatric nurses, would respond with police and direct mentally ill people to clinics and hospitals, said Cynthia Telles, who chairs the county's Incarcerated Mentally Ill Task Force.
