    Enrollment Deadline: September 21, 2019
    Course Size: Minimum -25, Maximum – 30

    Course Object

    This 40-hour program is designed to provide selected officers with specialized training on dealing with individuals in the community who have a mental illness or other behavioral disability.  CIT officers are trained as resource specialists who can provide immediate response to calls involving a mental health crisis.  The “team” concept refers to law enforcement involvement with stakeholder agencies, as well as interagency mutual assistance when appropriate.

    The course will be conducted by a diverse group of law enforcement and behavioral health professionals.

    During the week, students will participate in a variety of valuable exercises that will simulate auditory and 3-D visual hallucinations that individuals with a mental illness might experience.  The program will also provide officers with a unique opportunity to interact with individuals who have a mental illness and their family members (primary and secondary consumers).

    An essential part of the CIT course is scenario-based skills training.  Officers are challenged with realistic scenarios portrayed by professional actors from Chicago and St. Louis.  Scenarios may include a suicide intervention, de-escalating a violent situation, or responding to a call involving an individual experiencing paranoia.  All scenarios are facilitated and evaluated by certified CIT officers.

    Course Content

    Topics include:

    •         Signs and Symptoms of Mental Illness
    •         Medical Conditions that Mimic Mental Illness
    •         Compliant Surrender and Tactical Response
    •         Child and Adolescent Disorders
    •         Autism
    •         Intellectual Disabilities
    •         Risk Assessment and Legal Issues

    Course Object

    This 40-hour program is designed to provide selected officers with specialized training on dealing with individuals in the community who have a mental illness or other behavioral disability.  CIT officers are trained as resource specialists who can provide immediate response to calls involving a mental health crisis.  The “team” concept refers to law enforcement involvement with stakeholder agencies, as well as interagency mutual assistance when appropriate.

    The course will be conducted by a diverse group of law enforcement and behavioral health professionals.

    During the week, students will participate in a variety of valuable exercises that will simulate auditory and 3-D visual hallucinations that individuals with a mental illness might experience.  The program will also provide officers with a unique opportunity to interact with individuals who have a mental illness and their family members (primary and secondary consumers).

    An essential part of the CIT course is scenario-based skills training.  Officers are challenged with realistic scenarios portrayed by professional actors from Chicago and St. Louis.  Scenarios may include a suicide intervention, de-escalating a violent situation, or responding to a call involving an individual experiencing paranoia.  All scenarios are facilitated and evaluated by certified CIT officers.

    Course Objective

    In this course of instruction, a multifaceted investigative approach will be provided to establish the investigative framework from which a lead homicide detective will be able to conduct an all-encompassing and most intrusive investigation into the murder of a human being. In order to accomplish this, multiple facets of a homicide investigation will be explored that are foundational to identifying, understanding and holding those persons criminally culpable for the death of another. From the initial response, applying behavioral and forensic examinations at the crime scene, prioritization of investigative measures, interview strategies and the necessary collaboration with a prosecutor in preparation for trail are covered. Additionally, the course will engage the participants in an interactive classroom setting in which actual cases are reviewed and analyzed to augment the lecture and teaching points brought forth. The participants will then put their newly acquired knowledge to the test through the application of course practicums in order to demonstrate their acquired proficiency.

    8am – 5pm

    Class will meet in our classroom (above)
    Enrollment Deadline: November 4, 2019
    Course Size: Minimum -15, Maximum – 64

    Course Objective

    In this course of instruction, a multifaceted investigative approach will be provided to establish the investigative framework from which a lead homicide detective will be able to conduct an all-encompassing and most intrusive investigation into the murder of a human being. In order to accomplish this, multiple facets of a homicide investigation will be explored that are foundational to identifying, understanding and holding those persons criminally culpable for the death of another. From the initial response, applying behavioral and forensic examinations at the crime scene, prioritization of investigative measures, interview strategies and the necessary collaboration with a prosecutor in preparation for trail are covered. Additionally, the course will engage the participants in an interactive classroom setting in which actual cases are reviewed and analyzed to augment the lecture and teaching points brought forth. The participants will then put their newly acquired knowledge to the test through the application of course practicums in order to demonstrate their acquired proficiency.
