Sacramento police stop man from jumping off overpass. Sacramento police and dispatchers used their revamped approach to situations involving a mental health crisis earlier this month when a man threatened to harm himself.

Police responded to the area of Tribute Road and Highway 160 on March 4 around 10:30 a.m. regarding a man threatening to jump off a highway overpass. Dispatch personnel immediately initiated efforts to de-escalate the situation, including techniques over the phone until officers arrived.

After arriving on scene, body cam footage shows the officers walking towards the man while they ask if he feels up to talking with them. The man, who later in the video tells officers he is 18 years old, attempted to jump off the overpass but an officer was able to wrap his arms around him.

Video shows the officers prying the man off the railing before trying to calm him down. They continue letting the man know he’s not in trouble and they want to help. “We’re here for you, bud. We’re here for you,” an officer said.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment. His face, along with the officers, was blurred in the video and no one involved is being identified.
