Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) New Jersey Program
Established in 2007, the NJ CIT Center of Excellence supports and assists counties throughout the state in developing the CIT-NJ program for their communities. The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT-NJ) program is an innovative international police model that incorporates collaboration between the community’s law enforcement system and mental health system to respond to the needs of those in psychiatric crisis. This partnership develops and sustains a 40 hour CIT certification program for its police departments and mental health providers in order to provide them with knowledge about mental illnesses, crisis resolution skills and access to community based services.
