MONTGOMERY COUNTY PRECINCT 1 DEPUTY RECEIVES AWARD FROM NATIONAL ORGANIZATION

On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, in Montgomery County Commissioners Court, Precinct One Mental Health Deputy Laci Seaton received “CIT Deputy of the Quarter” Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Dr. Brenda LaVar, President of the Board of Directors for the Greater Houston Area, presented Deputy Seaton with the award stemming from an incident in June of 2021. Deputy Seaton responded to a citizen with suicidal thoughts and behaviors in the Willis area who was barricaded inside a bathroom with weapons. Deputy Seaton utilized her specialized training in Mental Health and De-escalation techniques to connect with the female and was able to get her to respond to deputies on the scene. The dedication of Deputy Seaton ultimately lead to the successful resolution of the incident without any force used.
Deputy Seaton is a member of the Precinct One Mental Health and Crisis Intervention Team led by Lieutenant Brian Luly, which the Montgomery County Commissioners Court unanimously voted to increase to 24 full-time Deputy positions. This division is tasked by the Court to provide mental health services to those in crisis throughout all of Montgomery County.
