ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:

Let's turn now to Denver, where mental health teams have been subbing in for police on certain calls. That six-month experiment has now been dubbed a success, and city leaders are poised to expand it in a big way with an infusion of tax money. Some advocates say spending on police alternatives needs to include a reduction in police funding overall. Colorado Public Radio's David Sachs reports.

DAVID SACHS, BYLINE: It's 5 degrees in downtown Denver. Chris Richardson just helped a man who was hallucinating and walking around with nothing on his feet. So he gave him some shoes.

CHRIS RICHARDSON: All he needed in that moment was shoes. And we just built a relationship that hopefully, if he sees us again, that we can have that ongoing conversation about connecting under that long-term support.
