Below are some recent headlines on our local CIT.

CIT Officer Recognition

Missoula Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) trained officers are members of the Missoula Police Department, Missoula County Sheriff's Office and Missoula County Detention Facility with specialized training in de-escalating mental health crises and connecting people to necessary community resources. 

We would like to honor and recognize the CIT Officers who have served the community in crisis situations with exceptional care and compassion, while ensuring the safety of themselves and others. 

CIT Officers:

  1. Think big picture, long-term, and often outside the box to do what is right for the individual/community.
  2. Take ownership vs. pointing fingers or blaming -- they ask themselves "What more can I do to help this individual/community?" 
  3. Recognize that EVERY individual is a human being ("what if this was my family member?") and accept and respect others as they are and without judgement. 
  4. Strive to have a lasting positive affect on every situation they are involved in. 

If you would like to nominate an Officer that you believe is deserving of this recognition, please fill out this nomination form. If you don't know that they are CIT trained, that's ok -- submit your request regardless.
