Crisis Intervention TeamCourse Title: Crisis Intervention Team
Course Dates: October 21 - 25, 2013
Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is an effective law enforcement training and response program designed for first responders who handle crisis calls involving people with mental illness, developmental disabilities, and alcohol and/or substance abuse disorders.
The CIT training is designed to:
- Provide supportive measures and an “on-the-job-tool” that can be used by law enforcement personnel to enhance and maintain officer, consumer and public safety.
- Provide intervention strategies and alternatives to assist in directing individuals with mental illness to appropriate health care systems during crisis contacts and reduce their involvement in the criminal justice system.
