PCCD to Host State CIT Symposium on April 20
The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2023 Statewide Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Symposium! PCCD, in collaboration with the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) and Centre County CIT, will hold the annual Statewide CIT Symposium at the Wyndham Garden State College on April 20, 2023.
This one-day event will feature informative sessions covering topics on building a certified CIT program, first responders, and collecting data, as well as a special virtual reality session focused on the evolution of a CIT scenario. PCCD is pleased to host Brian Peete, Director with the Riley County Police Department in Manhattan, Kansas, who will provide attendees with information on tactical-based concepts to help increase survivability for both responders and the person in crisis, allowing for verbal de-escalation to start.
