Did you know the Beecher Police Department has 11 officers trained in crisis intervention training? Those 11 officers attended a 40 hour Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board (ILETSB) state-certified Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) course to better serve the community. The officers received intensive training on recognizing and addressing individuals in the community who have a mental illness or other behavioral disability. Our goal is to provide an immediate and effective response to calls involving a mental health crisis. The officers trained in the following topics: • Mental Illness Signs and Symptoms • Child and Adolescent Issues • Geriatric Issues • Co-Occurring Disorders – Substance Abuse • Verbal De-Escalation and Tactical Response • Returning Veterans and PTSD • Risk Assessment and Crisis Intervention Skills • Law Enforcement Response and Legal Issues • Medical Conditions and Psychotropic Medications • Autism and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities • Community Resources Officers receive annual updates on topics through our training partners to provide up to date and relevant service to our citizens and visitors. CIT certified officers wear a blue CIT pin below the name tag on the officer’s right pocket. If you would like any additional information about our CIT program please feel free to call us.
