Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)

The County of Summit ADM Board partners with multiple Summit County agencies Crisis Intervention Team Training to educate officers about mental illness and teach deescalation techniques to reduce the harm to themselves and to the individuals involved in crisis situations. 

The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program is a community partnership of law enforcement, mental health and addiction professionals, individuals who live with mental illness and/or addiction disorders, their families and other advocates. It is an innovative first-responder model of police-based crisis intervention training to help persons with mental disorders and/or addictions access medical treatment rather than place them in the criminal justice system due to illness related behaviors. It also promotes officer safety and the safety of the individual in crisis.

2022 CIT Training dates just announced! Please contact the ADM Board at with any questions.
