First Brooklyn Police Officers Receive CIT Designation

The Brooklyn Police Department announces the first class of 4 officers certified in the CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) program.  CIT is a police-based pre-arrest jail diversion program.  The program is a partnership between law enforcement and emergency health services. CIT officers receive approximately 40 hours of training in areas including psychiatric disorders, substance abuse issues, de-escalation techniques, and in legal issues related to mental health and substance abuse.  In addition, they receive empathy training from individuals with mental illness and gain exposure to the views of family members of those suffering from a mental illness.  An additional 5 officers are scheduled to attend the training in December 2015. 

The City of Brooklyn Police Department works to enhance the quality of life in the City and to provide a safe and secure environment for our residents, businesses and visitors. We are committed to working with the community to identify and solve problems as an aid in the reduction of crime.

The Police Department is staffed by 1 police chief - 22 police officers - 3 detectives - 7 sergeants - and 5 dispatchers who are dedicated to providing a multitude of police, crime prevention and safety services.
