CIT Coordinators are the backbone to a successful community CIT program. They bring vision and leadership necessary for a CIT program to grow and be sustained.

The Certified CIT Coordinator Course was developed in 2016 by Suzanne Andriukaitis and Tom von Hemert and contributed to by Mike Woody, Sam Cochran, Ron Bruno, Nick Margiotta, Pat Strode, and Kurt Gawrisch. CIT Researcher Amy Watson, Ph.D. was asked to address the importance of collecting program data and outcome measures. Developed for persons who are serving as CIT Coordinators, the course focuses on the roles and responsibilities of CIT Coordinators as they develop, deliver, and enhance the CIT Program in their own communities. Over 80 individuals from Canada and across the United States completed the first course, including a Deputy Chief of Police, behavioral health providers, advocates, and police officers. Upon completion of the course, participants received a certificate, a lapel pin, and a flash drive containing additional resource materials.
