Part one of a four-part series investigating impact of mental illness on law enforcement.

Over a 12-hour period in early May, a mentally ill woman called police at least 17 times, eight of them by walking 12 blocks to the police station and calling from a phone there after her boyfriend took her phone away.

Police repeatedly interacted with her, either coming to her house when she called, or when multiple neighbors called to say she was outside screaming. They drove her home twice from the police station, only to have her walk back downtown to call again.
