Montgomery County CIT graduates - August 2020

During the week of July 27, 2020, Montgomery County hosted 40 hours of Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training for 24 law enforcement officers and other first responders. Students represented the Asheboro Police Department, FirstHealth EMS, FirstHealth Security, the Greensboro Police Department, the Mt. Gilead Police Department, North Carolina Department of Public Safety Probation/Parole (Montgomery County) and the Troy Police Department. Det. Sgt. James Kerney of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office served as host officer. CIT in Montgomery County is cosponsored by Sandhills Center, Daymark Recovery Services, Therapeutic Alternatives, FirstHealth, Montgomery Community College, NAMI-Moore County and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office. This was the first class of CIT to resume in the Sandhills Center region since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Many classes throughout the region have been postponed or rescheduled, however based on the success of the Montgomery County class, Sandhills Center is confident that instruction can continue successfully with the proper protocols in place. Instructors, participants and cosponsors took necessary safety and health precautions as prescribed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as local health authorites.
