CIT-NJ is a county based collaboration of law enforcement professionals and mental health professionals who are committed to developing a local system of services that is responsive to individuals with mental illness, family members and the police officers. The CIT-NJ model strives to provide law enforcement officers and mental health professionals with knowledge and skills that allow them to respond to the individual in psychiatric crisis in a manner that minimizes the potential for injury. In addition, the CIT-NJ model can be instrumental in helping to divert the individual with serious mental illness from the criminal justice system to appropriate mental health treatment. Members of Tri-State's Crisis Response Team have taken the 40 hour CIT training along side law enforcement and mental health professionals.  If funding is available, Tri-State sends several representative to the annual CIT International conference to keep up-to-date with best practices and re-connect with CIT members from across the United States who have used our services during times of mass tragedy in their local community.

Tri-State Canine Response Team is proud to be the "CIT-NJ K9 Ambassadors" for Crisis Intervention Team - New Jersey (CIT-NJ). In that capacity, we provide services to 20 counties on an as needed basis. Some of the services that we have provided include crisis response support, comfort and support during funerals, Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) training, presentations on the function and availability of Tri-State teams, partnerships during National Night Out and other local mental health and law enforce events.

Please contact us if you are a CIT-NJ member and would like to include Tri-State's CIT-NJ K9 Ambassadors in your response, event or for QPR training.
