The lack of mental health crisis services across the U.S. has resulted in law enforcement officers serving as first responders to most crises.  A Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program is an innovative, community-based approach to improve the outcomes of these encounters.  Officers on CIT have advanced training in assisting citizens in crisis, and can help connect them to mental health and/or drug treatment programs in Central Massachusetts, as well as referring them to the Northwest Middlesex Community Outreach Initiative Network (COIN).

Programs like CIT reduce arrests of people with mental illness while simultaneously increasing the likelihood that individuals will receive mental health services
