Ohio CIT Peer Review Process

The Ohio CIT Peer Review Process is a voluntary and collegial process built on a quality improvement approach to strengthen our collective understanding of the core elements and best practices within CIT programs. The Peer Review process is built on a continuous learning approach that allows communities interested in improving their program, a process to receive very specific feedback on their implementation to the CIT core elements; allows peer reviewers to also learn ways to strengthen their CIT programs through lessons learned acting as a reviewer; and better positions the CCoE to provide ongoing technical assistance based on exemplary practices from Ohio’s CIT programs.

Peer Reviews began in Fiscal Year 2010. Peer Reviewers include consultants of the CJCCoE and CIT Coordinators from mental health and law enforcement agencies around the state. Each process results in a written report to aid communities in further developing their CIT programs.
