Lebanon Police Department’s Crisis Intervention Team Expanded

The Lebanon Police Department first began Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training in February 2013, when members of the Police Department concluded a week-long training in Crisis Intervention. During the week of September 9-13, 2019, seven more Lebanon Police Department officers concluded the Crisis Intervention training. The Lebanon Police Department now has 21 out of 33 full-time police officers trained in Crisis Intervention.

This specialized training gives the department a group of officers who can respond to and actively engage with individuals who may be in crisis due to a mental health issue.

The training took place at the Hartford VT Police Department in partnership with NAMI VT and NH, Deer Creek Psychological Associates, Headrest, DHMC, Mt. Ascutney Hospital, HCRS, West Central Behavioral Health, VA Medical Center, NH Hospital, ALL Together, TLC HomeCare, and the Hartford Autism Regional Program. Instruction was provided in varying aspects of mental illness. The training concluded with the officers taking part in real life scenarios where they were required to put the knowledge and skills they learned to the test.
