|Crisis Intervention Team|
The “Crisis Intervention Team” are members of the police department that have been trained in “Crisis Intervention Training” by C.A.B.L.E. (Connecticut Alliance to Benefit Law Enforcement). “Crisis Intervention Training” is geared to teach officers how to deal with individuals with mental illnesses, what techniques that may be beneficial when having contact with someone showing signs of a disorder and/or going through a difficult time, etc. The majority of the training is provided by people who work in the mental health field, officers trained in dealing with the mentally ill as well as individuals who have a mental illness.
