Should someone be detained for mental assesment from others speculations?

Several accounts detail that people suspected Jared Loughner's mental instibility years before this incident. My question is can or should police detain someone suspected of mental instibility by going on other peoples accounts or do you have to wait for an incident. Could this tragic shooting have been avoided if authorities had intervined years earlier?
