Crisis Intervention Training
Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) trains officers to effectively assist individuals in their communities who are in crisis due to behavioral health or developmental disorders. CIT relies on a strong community partnership and a vibrant crisis system to appropriately redirect individuals in crisis away from the criminal justice system and into the behavioral health system. The goals of the program are to reduce stigma, increase both officer and consumer safety, and access supports and services to decrease continuing involvement with the criminal justice system.
