CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM
Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training is specialized training provided to Law Enforcement and other first responders on how to more effectively respond to incidents involving mental illness and individuals in crisis. CIT focuses on teaching tactics and communication to de-escalate situations based on the individual’s specific needs through instruction on various mental disorders. Whether responding to a call or following up to another officer’s report, our goal is to provide safer intervention for the person experiencing a mental health crisis along with linking effective resources to the person and loved ones, thereby ensuring the community and Police an ongoing, strong relationship.
SPECIAL NEEDS SAFETY PROGRAM
We also provide a Special Needs Safety Program for those suffering from mental health related issues. We are working to bring a more individualized approach to public safety to serve those with mental Illness, special needs, and aging disorders. Our Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) are officers specially trained to help you and your loved one in the event of a crisis. The team is also dedicated to working with our community members to plan for a future crisis and achieve the safest possible outcome.
The way the program works is a member of our Crisis Intervention Team will come meet with you and your loved one. We will discuss with you questions or concerns you may have and the individuals specific condition. Each person and their condition is unique and we will discuss a safety plan that’s is also unique. Should we have a future event involving you or your loved one, that information would be utilized by our officers to deal with any crisis and develop a uniquely tailored solution.
Let’s work together to achieve the safest possible outcome.
