Supporting Best Practice
Promoting response to mental health crises with teams of specially-trained members made up of law enforcement, criminal justice services, behavioral healthcare services, and behavioral health advocates.
CIT Utah honors and respects the work of elected officials and policy makers across the state. We have assembled information to help elected officials understand the value that Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) can bring to local areas.
Law Enforcement is any vital member of any successful Crisis Intervention Team (CIT). Integrating CIT into law enforcement agencies can save the department money, provide specialized assistance and produce better outcomes for those in crisis, their family members and to the officers themselves.
