NAMI Memphis is proud to host the 30th Annual CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) Officers Awards Ceremony this year on June 16th, 2018 at 6 PM at Bellevue Baptist Church, 2000 Appling Road, Bartlett, TN 38016. NAMI Memphis was instrumental in helping to form this crucial department of law enforcement to assist with those in mental health crisis in Memphis and Shelby County in 1988 with the Memphis Police Department and the University of Memphis, which has now spread throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Sweden.
This program is crucial in our community in keeping those with a mental health diagnosis safe and transported to a mental health facility at times of crisis.
These wonderful officers receive an extra 40 hours of volunteer training to specialize in in mental health crisis. Not all calls result in a transport, but these officers treat all individuals they are called upon to assist with great care and dignity, as well as family members and loved ones.
We will be honoring CIT nominees from each precinct in Memphis, The Shelby County Sheriff's Department, the City of Bartlett, Germantown, Collierville, University of Memphis, University of Tennessee, Memphis Airport Police, Memphis and Shelby County Department of Corrections, and the Memphis VA.
