CIT is collaboration between Law Enforcement, families of the mentally ill and Mental Health agencies, both public and private. This course will give the officer more options when dealing with the mentally ill. The goal of CIT is to have fewer contacts with the mentally ill persons in crisis, and when contacts are made, they are made safer for the Officer and the individuals in crisis.
This training is geared primarily to Law Enforcement officers and will cover information about the most prevelant mental illnesses that officers routinely come into contact with. Officers will be taught de-escalation techniques, making contacts with mentally ill persons in crisis safer. Instructors for this course include officials from law enforcement, mental health and criminal justice disciplines.
Included in this 32-hour Academy is a one day training on advanced de-escalation.
Keynote Speaker: Ellis Amdur, M.A. will present “Grace Under Fire for Law Enforcement – The De-escalation and Calming of Aggressive and Emotionally Disturbed Individuals.”
