Critical Incident Negotiations

The Critical Incident Negotiations Team consists of members of the department who have received specialized training in handling mental crisis situations and in negotiations. This training equips members of the team to more effectively deal with those in our community who might come into contact with law enforcement due to a mental disease or other issue. Some of the beneficial results of this training:

  • Decrease in the use of force used during contacts with mental health consumers
  • Decrease in the number of injuries that an officer, the mental health consumer or other citizens might receive
  • Decrease in arrest rates for the mentally ill
  • Securing outpatient treatment for the mental health consumer

Crisis Intervention Team

Members of the Crisis Intervention Team work and train in conjunction with team members from the Chattanooga Police Department, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and other regional law enforcement agencies to provide the highest level of service to the mental health consumers with which we interact. All officers undergo an initial 40-hour, CIT training course presented by various providers from throughout the mental health community. Some of the areas of training focus on:

  • Clinical Issues
  • Psychotropic Medication and Side Effects
  • Substance Abuse and Co-occurring Disorders
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorders
  • Cultural Awareness
  • Developmental Disabilities
  • Suicide Intervention
  • Alzheimer's Syndrome and Dementia
  • Legal Issues and Mental Health Law
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Borderline and other Personality Disorders
  • Community Resources, including training on assessing or requesting crisis services
