Killeen Police Introduces New Mental Health Program

Killeen, TX (April 25, 2022): The Killeen Police Department in conjunction with the Killeen Branch NAACP and Texas A&M University-Central Texas will be launching a new mental health program in the City of Killeen.

The Killeen Police Department recognizes the seriousness and the complexities of mental illness in our society. Our mission at the Killeen Police Department is to serve our citizens who suffer from mental illness with quality, professional and compassionate service. Knowing this valuable information can give the officers the tools they need for a better approach to citizen interaction.

On Monday, May 2, 2022, the program, “Killeen Cares”, will launch at Texas A & M University in the Bernie Beck Founders Hall on the 1st Floor located at 1001 Leadership Pl from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00p.m. We invite the public and the media to come out and join us.
For additional information or any questions about this program, you can contact Sgt. Angela Mathews at (254) 462-6042 or by email at
