After attending the BSF 40 hour CIT training, CIT coach training and CIT trainer class, officers from several Sherburne County, MN agencies began putting on one day CIT Mini-classes for all law enforcement, corrections and human service partners in their county.
These classes include 4 hours, 5 scenarios, of practical exercises with professional actors and CIT trained coaches in a small group setting. Also includes mental health overview, practical and effective de-escalation techniques review and discussion of local crisis and mental health resources. They find it to be a cost effective way to improve crisis response and strengthen collaborative partnerships throughout their county. Thanks Sherburne County for your leadership!
