Four SHPD Officers Complete Crisis Intervention Training Course

Spring Hill, TN – Four SHPD officers along with fourteen other Williamson County first responders graduated from the first Williamson County Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training course that was held last week in Franklin, TN. CIT programs are community-based programs that bring law enforcement together with mental health professionals, advocates, and other partners to improve community responses to persons experiencing a mental health crisis. The goal is to improve safety for both parties during interactions between law enforcement and people experiencing a mental health crisis and to increase connections to effective and timely mental health services.

The SHPD is hoping to add non-sworn mental health professionals in the near future to provide the best possible service to those experiencing a mental health crisis.
