Crisis Intervention Team

Crisis Intervention Team deputies help to improve interaction between law enforcement and persons with mental illness and prevent the inappropriate restraint, incarceration, and stigmatization of persons with mental illness. CIT Deputies help reduce injury to other deputies/officers, family members and individuals in crisis, and link individuals with mental illness to appropriate treatment and resources in the community. The trained CIT deputy is skilled at de-escalating crises while bringing an element of understanding and compassion to these difficult situations. 911 callers can ask for a CIT deputy to respond to their incident.
