COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho county sheriff and four area police chiefs have signed a letter written by a state senator requesting that Coeur d’Alene get a behavioral-health crisis center. The Coeur d’Alene Press reports that Kootenai County Sheriff Ben Wolfinger, Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Ron Clark, Post Falls Police Chief Scot Haug, Rathdrum Police Chief Kevin Fuhr, and Spirit Lake Police Chief Keith Hutcheson signed the document. Republican State Sen. John Goedde of Coeur d’Alene wrote the letter. The Idaho Legislature has approved money for a facility but Boise and Idaho Falls are also being considered for the $1.52 million approved by lawmakers for the facility. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare requested money to operate three crisis centers, but lawmakers only passed funding for one.
