Prioritize treatment over jail for low-level, nonviolent offenders and help train law enforcement officers in responding to conflicts involving persons with mental illness

She will also direct the attorney general to issue guidance to federal prosecutors, instructing them to prioritize treatment over incarceration for low-level, nonviolent offenders.
