CITAC is the premier non-profit membership association governing Crisis Intervention Teams in the State of Colorado. Through partnerships with our many civilian and governmental organizations, we strive for success in both communication and training preparedness.
The CIT model has since spread to many areas of the United States. In 2002, the Colorado Regional Community Policing Institute (CRCPI), a branch of the Colorado Division of Criminal Justice, launched the state's first CIT trainings in Jefferson County and Denver. When CRCPI was disbanded in 2008, CITAC was given the responsibility of supporting the standardization of CIT training in Colorado.
During the first 10 years of CIT training in Colorado, over 7,000 Colorado peace officers – fully half of the certified peace officers statewide – completed CIT training.
