The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program is a community partnership of law enforcement, mental health professionals, mental health consumers and family member advocates. CIT's goal is to help persons with serious mental disorders access medical treatment rather than placing them in the criminal justice system for illness-related behaviors.
The CIT Advisory Committee meets monthly or as called to discuss and resolve issues that come up from time to time regarding the LMPD CIT services, services of the hospital, psychiatric bed availability and any other related policies or criteria that affect the CIT Program.
