Current law allows specified intervening professionals to transport
to a treatment facility any person who appears to be in need of an

immediate evaluation for treatment of a mental health disorder to prevent
physical or psychiatric harm to others or to himself or herself. The
authority to involuntarily hold such a person in custody expires upon the
delivery of the person to the facility. The bill adds language to clarify that
the authority to hold the person remains in effect until the evaluation is
completed and a determination is made concerning the need for continued
emergency evaluation and treatment.
