People

Wednesday, June 29th at 12 p.m., The Montgomery County Police Crisis Intervention Team (C.I.T.) celebrate its tenth year of service to the Montgomery County community.  The Crisis Intervention Team is a collaborative partnership between the Montgomery County Police Department and the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services.  C.I.T. is a group of more than 578 sworn officers who have completed a voluntary 40-hour training course that focuses on how to recognize mental illness and effectively communicate with the mentally ill, suicidal and the developmentally disadvantaged.  The Montgomery County C.I.T. has also participated in training more than 1200 officers and social workers from around the country to more effectively respond to the needs of the mentally ill.  

The anniversary will take place at Montgomery County Crisis Center, 1301 Piccard Drive, Rockville.
