Service Description

This 40-hour Crisis Intervention Training Course will cover the key concepts, safety techniques, and communication skills critical when dealing with persons suffering with a mental illness who find themselves in a state of crisis. It will expand the student’s knowledge in de-escalation for all types of crisis interactions such as the utilization of the LEAPS theory of de-escalation, Active Listening Skills, and crisis scene management. Student will be taught and guided by various subject matter experts with time for discussions, questions, and concerns. Brainstorming with fellow attendees will assist in the discussion of “best practices” and the sharing of personal situational experiences. This course will include a combination of lecture, scenario role-play, and discussion-based training. Participants will be actively involved both verbally and physically. Students will learn and practice their ability to de-escalate crisis situations and complete evaluations for follow-up actions such as Peace Officer’s Emergency Detention (POED). The learning objectives satisfy the required content of the Crisis Intervention Training 40 HR Course (TCOLE 1850). This course is a required course to be completed no later than the second anniversary of the date the officer is licensed or the date an officer applies for an intermediate proficiency certificate, whichever date is earlier.
