Alexandria Police To Host Crisis Intervention Team Awards Ceremony

Alexandria’s Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) will hold an Awards Ceremony and Cookout Thursday, September 6, at 4:00 p.m. The event will be held at Alexandria Police Headquarters, located at 3600 Wheeler Avenue; and will be hosted by Mayor William D. Euille, Police Chief Earl L. Cook, Sheriff Dana Lawhorne and Liz Wixson from the Department of Community and Human Services.

The CIT program has trained more than 150 first responders to intervene with persons experiencing a mental health crisis, helping divert many away from the criminal justice system and into appropriate treatment. The program has helped to decrease the cycle of criminal justice recidivism often experienced by person with mental illness, thus changing the lives of many in the process.

Media is invited and encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact the Public Information Office at 703.746.6600.
