Crisis Intervention Team training, nationwide, has adopted the saying of “it’s more than just training.”


Training patrol officers in the concepts of dealing better with mentally ill, and other challenging populations, is just the beginning.  With changes occurring in King County (with regard to the new Crisis Diversion Facility) and statewide, it is necessary for departments to develop a new mind set with regard to calls involving this very difficult population. 


Officers are encouraged to look for other more effective (and less costly) options, besides jailing and/or hospitalization, of these individuals.  We are really looking to encourage long term problem solving efforts, where possible. This class is to provide Chiefs, and other command level personnel, of the need to support the concept of CIT training and CIT programs in their agency.

This training will seek to provide Chiefs and command level personnel with ideas and suggestions of policies that might help when looking to promote the CIT concept into their agency, and seeking to become partners with the community advocates in their respective communities.


Your instructors will include: 

  • Stuart Estes, (Attorney whose practice includes defending cities and police departments from various lawsuits.)
  • Sgt. Don Gulla, (King County Sergeant currently assigned to the coordinator for the MIDD CIT training.)
  • Washington Cities Insurance Authority Representative.
