Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) course (40 hours)  is designed to provide law enforcement with training on how to effectively respond to situations involving persons experiencing a mental health crisis. Topics include recognizing signs of mental illness, de-escalation techniques, laws involving mental commitment and community resources.

CIT training for agencies is specified in Arkansas ACT 423 of 2017. The training requirement is listed under Section 7 of the act and states (in part) that “A local law enforcement agency, including a county sheriff's office, but not a municipal law enforcement agency that employs less than ten (10) full-time law enforcement officers, shall employ at least one (1) law enforcement officer who has completed within eighteen (18) months of the effective date of this act the crisis intervention team training as described 13 under subdivision (c)(2) of this section.
