Hats off to the 2016 Crisis Intervention Team graduating class!
A Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program
is a model for community policing that brings together law enforcement,
mental health providers, hospital emergency departments and individuals
with mental illness and their families to improve responses to people
in crisis. CIT programs enhance communication, identify mental health
resources for assisting people in crisis and ensure that officers get
the training and support that they need.
