Crisis Intervention Training (CIT)

Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) is a program that teaches law enforcement as front-line caretakers in the assessment and management of offenders with mental illness. 

Every year, more than two million jail bookings involve a person with a mental health condition. As the contacts between law enforcement and those needing mental health care become more frequent, there’s an increased need for collaboration and cooperation between the systems.  CIT training will not only help to de-escalate crisis situations, it will enhance safety and access to treatment.

Local law enforcement officers learn to identify mental health issues.
