Crisis training open to public

Boone County — Training in crisis intervention has helped local police more effectively and compassionately deal with mentally distraught and disturbed individuals, a Lebanon police officer said.

Patrolman Brad Bailey was one of those explaining the county’s Crisis Intervention Team, and its training, to the Boone County Healthy Coalition recently.

Five LPD officers are CIT certified, Bailey said.

The training has helped officers ensure people with mental issues receive treatment — or at least are given the opportunity to get help — at local facilities, Bailey said.

“Training has helped us fill out paperwork ... by putting in the proper wording and references from family members,” he said. Documentation allows treatment centers to keep a subject for two to three days, helping to get those people stabilized, Bailey said.

Role playing during the training has been replicated by some of his experiences on the street, Bailey said.
