Advanced Training Survey

button01aCIT International is developing a list of suggested advanced training topics available to CIT program training coordinators and, when possible, resources to assist in developing and/or delivering that training.

To that end, the Board is seeking input whether your program has offered advanced CIT training topics, and if so, information about that training. Please help us help all programs by answering a few quick questions. For the purposes of this survey, “advanced training” is defined as anything that was offered following your core, week-long CIT training – including both new topics and a review and/or an expansion of topics that were addressed in the core training.     Click on button or this link  to take survey.

Improving Responses to People with Mental Illnesses: Strategies for Effective Law Enforcement Training


Dutiful Minds – Dealing with Mental Illness

Dutiful Minds – Dealing with Mental Illness
By Lt. Michael S. Woody, Ret.01/06/03

How much training have your police officers had in dealing with persons that have mental illness?  I suspect that if your agency is like most, the answer is “Not much”!  Yet, did you know that depending on which article you believe, anywhere from 7 to 15% of the calls to which a police officer responds in this country involve someone with a mental illness?


Memphis Model

The Memphis Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is an innovative police based first responder program that has become nationally known as the “Memphis Model” of pre-arrest jail diversion for those in a mental illness crisis. This program provides law enforcement based crisis intervention training for helping those individuals with mental illness.
