|Elg, Fletcher complete additional law enforcement training|
Eight more law enforcement officers graduated last week from North Delta Police Academy's week-long Crisis Intervention Team training program.
There have been 215 northeast Louisiana police officers and 100 communications officers trained since the CIT program's inception in 2006.
"This was an excellent week of training which has given us a much greater understanding of just what a person is experiencing when in crisis and how we can best help that person," said West Monroe Police Chief Christopher Elg, who was one of the eight officers who completed the training.
With the graduation of this class, all 12 parishes in northeast Louisiana have trained law enforcement personnel to help a person who is experiencing a mental crisis. This allows for the de-escalation of an emergency and rendering of the appropriate assistance to a person in crisis, Elg said.
The course was taught by local law enforcement and mental health personnel. The course coordinators were Dr. Mikay Bonner and Cpl. Mark Johnson of the Monroe Police Department.
Sgt. Shannon Fletcher of the West Monroe Police Department also completed the training and graduated last week.
The other six officers are from West Carroll Sheriff's Department, Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Department, and Oak Grove Police Department.
The CIT program is a community partnership that works with local mental health consumers and family members. The goal is to set a standard of excellence for local law enforcement officers with respect to treatment of people with mental illness.
Officers are provided with the training and become part of a team that responds to a crisis at any time, working with the community to resolve situations in a manner that shows concern for the citizen's well being.
