Save the date – APRIL 30 – Give Your Input on New Police Training Requirements
In November 2018, the State voted on Initiative 940, which, among other things, mandated Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) for all law enforcement and first responders. The initiative passed, and is now in the implementation stage. Part of the implementation stage is getting feedback from the community, and especially from those people with direct experience with a mental health crisis involving first responders. As part of the due diligence, NAMI Snohomish County is hosting a Stakeholder’s meeting.
The meeting will be held Tuesday, April 30th, at Compass Health, in the building 2 Gymnasium, the 4526 Federal Avenue, Everett, WA from 6:30 – 8:30 PM.
Members of the implementation committee and law enforcement will be attending to receive feedback. The public is welcome to attend, and we especially encourage input from those people interacting with first responders because of a mental health crisis. Registration to attend is not required.
