January 8th, 2020 ----Yesterday evening the SPD Department held its CIT Appreciation Dinner. This event was to appreciate the CIT trained SPD officers and department’s commitment to the CIT program and mission. Our CIT program in Somerville began in 2013 and since then 63 officers have been trained. In 2019 with the support of Chief Fallon and grant funding the CIT program created the role of CIT coordinators. As we move into a new decade we would like to continue to develop our CIT model at SPD, increasing CIT officer involvement and opportunities in training and professional development. Cheers!
