Jen Corbin and Steve Thomas drove into Washington on Tuesday. She got to see President Joe Biden deliver the State of the Union address and the unruly Republican response. Thomas, an Anne Arundel County police lieutenant, checked in on U.S. Capitol Police officers as part of a peer support group. Corbin, director of crisis response for Anne Arundel County, introduced herself to Maryland’s new governor, Wes Moore, also a guest in the gallery. She preached the value of the county’s collaborative approach to mental health, addiction and crisis response, which brings together judges, prosecutors, public defenders, police, firefighters, medical experts, hospitals and nonprofits.
Jen Corbin is telling the story of Anne Arundel’s crisis response system. Maryland is listening.
