The Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) has announced its newest member, Support K9 NAMI, who joined the team in July 2022. Thanks to a generous donation from Beverly Hills Police Foundation Board Member and mental illness advocate, Janis Black Warner, BHPD was able to adopt and train NAMI. After a department-wide name voting opportunity, employees favored the name NAMI, which stands for National Alliance on Mental Illness.  The National Alliance on Mental Illness supports mental wellness and provides educational opportunities to those who struggle with mental illness.

Police Department employees are simply enamored with NAMI.

“NAMI is the absolute sweetest thing ever, thank you so much for putting in the hours of research and development to make this happen…I’ve never been happier to be at work with such a gem!” said Communications Dispatcher Colleen Henehan.

“Mental illness awareness through training and education is vital to helping those who suffer. The adoption of NAMI has brought a new level of awareness to our agency and we hope she will bring comfort to those who meet her. We look forward to having you meet her at our community events,” Chief Mark Stainbrook said.
