Mansfield Police responded to 113 calls to Foundations for Living on Lucas Road from November of 2012 through November 2013. The list of calls to the drug, alcohol, and mental health residential treatment center for teens includes assaults, small fires, sex crimes, and escapes. Sunday night's uprising, which police describe as a riot with five teens running away, was another among several violent outbursts over the years. Police Chief Ken Coontz is growing weary of it, and trying to work with the facility on stopping these problems. Coontz says the understaffed police department can't keep running to Foundations over trouble its own staff should be controlling. Coontz says Foundations for Living is set-up at a treatment facility, not a detention center, and does not have the security people needed to control troubled teens who don't want to be there. He will meet again with its administrators to discuss the latest incident.
