I commend the Salem Police Chief for having his entire police force CIT trained
& encourage every police officer to get CIT trained. What a difference this
training makes. NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) has fostered this
program to help police understand mental illness and the people suffering from
these brain diseases.I am encouraged to read of the de-escalation
techniques, less use of guns & tasers. Congratulations to the officers who
have completed this program!
