Complex. IF you are a relative, you have more say in the matter, and would need to discuss this wih the individual's psychiatrist ( if he/she is or has been under treatment already ) or with their GP if not, or even with the police locally, if you can find someone intelligent at the station. There has to be a proper expert assessment of the individual and the situation, to assess whether they are a real danger to themselves and/or to others.
