Six months after it started, the Moline Police Social Work Project is going to expand, thanks to a generous local resident.

Last summer, the Center for Youth and Family Solutions began a pilot project with the Moline Police Department, embedding two social workers with officers, to help them handle people with mental health problems.

Just five months after it started, a program to help Moline police better handle people with mental health problems will expand. Wednesday the city announced the creation of a paid internship for a college student majoring in social work.

The Moline Police Department hopes a new partnership with a Peoria-based social service agency will help officers better handle people with mental health problems. This week, two social workers from the Center for Youth and Family Solutions started working at the department full-time.
