Event Description
The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is an innovative first-responder model of police-based crisis intervention with community, health care and advocacy partnerships. CIT provides law enforcement-based crisis intervention training for assisting those individuals in crisis or with a mental illness, and improves the safety of patrol officers, consumers, family members and citizens within the community.
 
CIT is a program that provides the foundation necessary to promote community and statewide solutions to assist individuals in crisis and those with mental illness. The CIT Model reduces both stigma and need for further involvement with the criminal justice system. CIT provides a forum for effective problems solving regarding the interaction between the criminal justice and mental health care system and creates the context for sustainable change.
