The WSCJTC provides training for criminal justice personnel responding to people in mental health crisis. The training, called Crisis Intervention Team Training (CIT), involves working in a team with mental health practitioners, law enforcement, medical personnel, and other first responders to provide the best services possible to the individual in mental health crisis. This training is currently offered statewide by agencies that include, but are not limited to Wenatchee Police Department, Longview Police Department, Kennewick Police Department and Olympia Police Department.

 

In 2008, the WSCJTC created a curriculum manual with suggested course materials on CIT. The WSCJTC also has informational guides from the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations regarding CIT available.

Available by request to criminal justice agencies:

1. Crisis Intervention Training Suggested Course Materials Manual - WSCJTC 053108
2. Improving Responses to People with Mental Illnesses, Strategies for Effective Law Enforcement Training,
Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) 2008

3. A Guide to Implementing Police-Based Diversion Programs for People with Mental Illness, Melissa Reuland, January 2004, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

In 2010, the WSCJTC partnered with King County Mental Health to provide CIT Training to first responders in working or assigned to King County. CIT-King CO training has been set up to include 40-hour Basic training, in-service, and much more.
