Movie and TV Clips
During the summer of 2015, Michela Corsi, a Northeast Ohio Medical University student, researched movie and TV clips to enhance CIT training and other training formats related to mental illness awareness. Many of these clips can be found on YouTube; however, because the CJ CCoE cannot verify ownership or authenticity of these YouTube postings, we are providing clock counter times for the clips, not internet links.
Video Clips, PSAs, Interviews, and Documentaries
At the 2017 CIT International Conference, Thomas von Hemert and Kurt Gawrisch presented on a list of videos that may be useful in a variety of settings to promote cross systems collaboration, cross-training and other related work. Videos that may be beneficial to Ohio were extracted from that list.
The original list can be found on CIT International’s website.

Dispatcher/Call-Taker Training of CIT Trainers
Emergency dispatchers are a critical link in the CIT program and may include call-takers, dispatchers and 911 operators. The success of CIT depends on their familiarity with the CIT program, knowledge of how to recognize a CIT call involving a behavioral crisis event, ability to solicit information that will help the community member and the responding CIT Officer, and appropriate dispatch of CIT Officers.
The Criminal Justice Coordinating Center of Excellence provided a Training of CIT Dispatch Trainers on February 21, 2017, May 18, 2017 and December 4, 2018. The three courses hosted 82 participants representing 27 Alcohol Drug Addiction and Mental Health Board areas.
The goal of these courses was to provide trainers with the tools, materials and knowledge needed to hold a CIT companion course for dispatchers and call-takers in their home county. Training materials can be made available upon request. If you are interested in beginning a dispatch training in your community, please contact the CCoE through email@example.com or 330.325.6670, for more information.

Evaluate Your Training
CIT Training Follow Up Survey
Hamilton County sends out follow up surveys to CIT graduates 4-8 weeks post training – a tool to solicit feedback from the training after officers may have had a chance to utilize the skills learned.
CIT Training Written Exam
Hancock County utilizes a written exam toward the end of the course to test the content knowledge of participating officers. Tests are graded and results used in larger class discussion to reinforce learning. The very last question where participants rate themselves is compared to the same question that participants respond to in a pre-training survey, allowing an aggregate view of self-reported readiness pre-and post-training.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance) released a report on law enforcement officer suicide and mental health. This report serves as a national strategy for police chiefs to address suicide and mental health as core elements of officer safety and wellness. It summarizes a July 2013 symposium, supported by the US Department of Justice’s COPS Office, that brought together law enforcement, suicide prevention, and mental health experts to address this issue.
