Local Training for CIT •

Thank you, Tom

for your involvement with this very worthy project!

NAMI SWI Tom Johnson, CIT Coordinator for central & southern IL, has been involved with the training of hundreds of police officers in not only our local area but all parts of Illinois.

The next local CIT training for police officers has been set for the week of May 9th. The location is at the Grace Church in Fairview Heights, IL. On Thursday, May 12th, of training week, NAMI members and officers will have the opportunity to role play and will also have the opportunity to interact during lunch or in between role plays. One big “draw” for NAMI members as well as the officers is to observe the role play action to see first-hand how CIT training is demonstrated in realistic role plays. NAMI members and officers alike have both noted how helpful the time was to tell their stories, ask questions, and get to know all sides of what happens during crises.

If you are a NAMI SWI member and would be interested in attending this role play session, please contact the NAMI Office at (618) 798-9788.
