Advanced CIT


Follow-up Trainings for Certified CIT Police Officers and/or Negotiators & Special Operations Units

The CIT training model usually mandates forty hours of training in an intensive five day course. A tremendous amount of information is packed into a very short time. Officers find some information to be more directly relevant than other to their role as first response or corrections officers. After some time trying to implement the skills they have learned, they often find that they could use more information in one area or another. Furthermore, things come up on the job that were not part of the training whatsoever.

Similarly, Negotiators and SWAT officers, who must work hand-in-glove, often desire training that goes beyond the basics of Negotiation 101. We offer advanced tactical training, including higher uses of force combined with verbal de-escalation strategies.  Below are some of the areas of concern that we have previously been asked to address. Our areas of expertise are not confined to these topics, so please feel free to ask:

  • Suicide & Suicide-By-Cop
  • Psychotic behaviors
  • Problems with juveniles, including mental illness, violence and suicide
  • Assessment and tactical responses concerning domestic violence
  • Frequent callers to the 911 system or inmates in the correctional system who are in constant psychological crisis
  • Understanding the Active Shooter from the Inside Out
  • Manipulative individuals and sociopathic behaviors. Barricaded subjects with paranoid, borderline or anti-social mindsets

The advanced training is one or two days in length. Our participation as trainers in your basic CIT course is not a pre-requisite for this follow-up training
