Ernie & Joe introduces two courageous police officers in San Antonio’s mental health unit working to divert people away from jail and into mental health treatment. In an intimate portrait that illustrates progressive methods of policing, this documentary reflects the best of public servants, one 911 call at a time. Acclaimed filmmaker Jenifer McShane shines a light on a pair of officers trying and succeeding in doing it right by weaving together their experiences during their daily encounters with people in crisis. Discussion with Lori Wood, Tom Von Hemert, and Kevin Miller, moderated by Joanna Jennings (Region Ten)
