PHOENIX  ̶  On Saturday evening, April 29, 2017, a patient of the Arizona State Hospital’s Arizona Community Protection and Treatment Center ran from a regularly scheduled off-site treatment related activity. The patient dodged state hospital staff in the escape and removed their GPS tracking device.
The patient is considered to be a moderate risk for potential harm to others. Hospital staff immediately notified the Phoenix Police Department when the incident occurred and will continue to work with police during this investigation.
The Arizona State Hospital is working to assess the security of all off-site treatment activity. Our hospital team is committed to continuing its therapeutic and rehabilitative care for some of the most vulnerable patients in our community.
The Arizona Community Protection and Treatment Center is a civil commitment program mandated by the Arizona Legislature to provide supervision, care, and treatment to men adjudicated as sexually violent persons who have already completed their prison sentence. All admissions and readmissions to, and discharges from the center are court ordered.
